The reason I'm asking is I want to get a good veiw on which teams will be effected with the coming rule changes, who relies on their goalie and doesn't have the skill level to change their game etc.

Not trying to start a flaming war, so lets please not. Simply legitamite hockey research. So who does?

The obvious:

New Jersey Devils
Minnesota Wild
Calgary Flames
Anaheim Mightly Ducks
calgary plays a hard forechecking system. They trap only late in games just like everybody else. Just being low scoring against doesnt mean the team plays the trap. Look at ottawa - highest scoring team, probably most exciting but they play the trap more than calgary.
