Bad comparison. There's no way the Devils and the Sens play the same system. New Jersey depends on Brodeur to shut down the dump-and-chase, but Lalime can't handle the puck to save his life.

If both these teams 'trap', somebody needs to come up with more words to describe systems.

Personally I think the Devils change was mostly due to Ftorek coaching. Not that it was the only factor but Boston also had a high-scoring offense with him on the bench.

I would say canucks are way more exciting. They Rely on Cloutier A LOT to make the big saves, because they are always up ice, pressuring, making offensive chaces.

In 2001 when Robinson was the coach all year the Devils scored even more goals then they did in 2000 when Ftorek was the coach. I think losing Mogilny is was caused the Devils to become more reliant on defensive hockey. Losing a 40 goal scorer hurts. In 2002 they couldn't score goals even though they had Robinson as the coach for the beginning of the year.

And Boston has a high-scoring offense because they have Joe Thornton. If the Devils had a player like him they too would be a high-scoring offense.

Of COURSE you do!



Should I make a poll about this disagreement? I know who would win.

touche. perhaps you are correct aboot mogilny.

jersey tends to like balanced scoring i think, the year they led the league they had six 20-goal scorers.

but thornton isn't the only reason boston scores a lot, 01-02 saw them with three 40-goal scorers. thornton does tire out the opposition's grinders however...

Isles claim to have a trapping system, but played a 2-1-2 style against the Bruins and won 6-2.

I think Phoenix do a dump and chase (or "puck pursuit") especailly on the PP. apparently this year, they are going for the fast hard hitting approach like two years ago, rather than the "not sure what we are up to" of last year

Actually it was 7 players with more than 20 goals, 3 players with more than 30 and 2 40 goal scorers. That team had some serious firepower.

Canucks play a high forecheck style, relying on pressuring the puck holder and keeping the opponent's pinned in defensively.
