Every team who plays the trap and is actually good at it has one good shutdown Dman. Who is that for us?

LA-Doughty

NSH-Weber

Hamhuis is as good as both those two?

When you employ a trap system, which few teams do (despite belief to the contrary), it uses a team zone approach. When you have a shutdown d-man charged with stopping a specific player, or line, you are using a man-man system.

The Canucks will definitely play a bit more of a defensive style, at least to start off the season, but plugging 4 guys in the neutral zone isn't something the Canucks will do. Or at least, I hope not. zzzzz

What I'm trying to say is that the Canucks shouldn't be a trap team, nor are they suited to be. We tried it last half of the season and it didn't work. We were Beating bottom feeders by a marginal amount. Then when we had to face LA, it got exploited in the playoffs. That's why we got ousted in 5 games. Stick to our game, not a trap play.

The trap is too boring to be suffered, I'd rather watch weeds grow in my garden. Of course, baseball this year will be a great tonic - the Jays finally have a team that will be worth watching. If we play the trap- screw hockey- it is an insult to fans paying good money for tickets.

So, which one is uglier, a 7-3 loss or using the trap?

First of all I would like to congratulate Mr. Reputable on his first non-retarded thread.

Second of all I don't think we should go full on trap for the whole season, but we may need to go to a more defensive style (or even a trap) until we get some help in the Top 6.
