We live in a world where everyone *****es non-stop, just accept it .
Anyway, the Rangers ARE playing a trap. Maybe not 100% of the time, but they are. Personally I'd like them to be more aggressive on the forecheck because I think it isn't nearly as exciting as it used to be.
Also to the 40 shots argument. The trap is based on the premise of neutral zone turnovers that go the other way for scoring chances. So if one team is trapping sucessfully, then techinically they should have a lot of shots.
In addition, if a team can retain puck control in the offensive zone (which the Rangers have been pretty good at this season) they can get even more shots on goal while never leaving the offensive zone.
How can a Devil fan complain about Avery when their team had Lemieux help them win to 2 Cups?Which player has the longer rap sheet?
How many threads on this board revolve around the Devils?Compare it to the number of threads and posts bashing the Rangers on your board.You can't see that?
This is what you said:
Just look at their boards.It's all about the Rangers.
Up to this year it is the case and it pisses me off, but what makes me chuckle is before this year it was quite the opposite for at least the previous four years, there was nary a thread about the Rangers in our forum and plenty about the Devils in here.
And you never had a problem when this was the case like you have a problem with it now. Where were you the previous four years?
I hate the Devils, but now that we have Gomez, my hate has down a few notches, as I couldn't stand him on that team. Once Brodeur is done, *Ahem next season ,they'll probably be behind the Isles. It's still Devils, then Isles for me though, but it's close.
