No matter how many times I say it on thise board, it seems people choose to never argue the point and I see them later fall back on their tried and true "trap = interference = clutch and grab" excuse again.
My only disagreement, i dont think there are any teams playing with out using interference.
if the trap isplayed correclty, it should be creating offensive chances for the team that keeps interecpting the puck, but thats not even heppening.
