It wouldn't be the first Cup they won with the trap.

Bring the knights of the round table back, that's what I say. Even if you go with a different playing style, Lemaire and Robinson have a lot of intellect to offer the organization.

Some would say that Lemaire invented the trap. It was probably necessary with the Habs in the early 1980s. A number of key players from the Cup teams were already retired and the Habs no longer had the same firepower. In addition, Dryden wasn't there to cover up for a firewagon style. As I've noticed, Lemaire always modified his tactics according to the personnel he had available. In his playing days as the center for Shutt and Lafleur. He was the defensive presence but he was also a goal scorer. What nobody should question is his success rate.

The things he could do for Subban and guys like Tinordi, Ellis and Beaulieu (for the future) could be huge.
Exactly, We have lots of good prospects on D so you need the best man available to help them reach their potential.

Its a thing to draft good prospects but its a whole other thing to develop them.

I changed my mind. I do want a cup more than I want the trap not to characterize our team. But I want to eat my ice cream cake.

Three Thoughts:

1) If Robinson joins us could he influence Parise to sign with us as a UFA this summer?

2) If Robinson joins us would a UFA like Ryan Suter be enticed to play for a coach that is former All Star Defencemen

3) If Robinson joins us could he turn Gomez around and get him to play the way he played while in New Jersery

Yes to all three.

He must also intimidate Gary Bettman to get rid of the salary cap.

I want enjoyable hockey, not martin/lemaire trap ****. I have watched the habs play boring hockey for the last several years. Either show some passion and remind me what the habs used to be or move this ****ing team to Kansas.

Won the Norris, Conn Smyth, Stanley cup 5 times as a player and once as a head coach. But most impressive, never missed the playoffs in his 20 seasons in the NHL.

I just hope the HC would be someone robinson respects and has chemistry with. If Robinson feels the HC is a moron, it won't go well.

Well yea sure but look at the playoffs. Defensive systems are rulling the World and exciting teams like Philly are getting owned.

Look at the playoffs for any profesional sport, football, bball, even baseball if you include pitching as a part of the defense.

1. Maybe, but unlikely

2. No, IIRC Suter said he won't sign in Canada

3. I wouldn't hold my breath

Forget Lemaire. He said on RDS that he's not interested.

Bowman used the trap in the 70's.

We owe a good amount of our cups using that strategy.

It's funny how some newer fans forget that the Habs were one of the most successful teams at using the trap.

Not just Subban but for all the young guys in the "pipeline" NHL or AHL...Subban Weber Diaz Emelin Ellis Beaulieu Tinordi Pateryn plus Bennett Dietz Didier who could turn pro after next year.

Where do they think that Lemarie learned to trap? I guess that ignorance is bliss.

In today's NHL unless they dramatically change the rules, the trap and defensive hockey is a big part of winning. Obviously skilled PMD's and a good PP help generate offense against it and are essential. Teams trying to play run and gun don't go far like we saw with Pittsburgh and Phillie.

I think habs need to upgrade the bottom 6. Strong forechecking teams can create more offense. Guys who have some speed and can play the corners will help you win. That's why I hope we re-sign moen. Without some guys like that we'll have trouble digging in for the puck and creating chances. Very happy we have Cole as he certainly helps.
