Not really. They don't clutch-and-grab or obstruct or anything like that. They run their show totally within the rules of the "free-flow" game. If anything guys like Sutter/Hitchcock should be applauded for adapting their traditional approaches to the game to the current system.

I for one think it's great hockey. Everyone back-checking, everyone finishing their hits, and everyone playing responsibly. It's come to a point where it takes a near-perfect setup/play or an astronomical mistake for a scoring opportunity to occur. And Niemi/Quick are displaying some lights-out goal-tending to boot.
