    Johansen ded and Fisher out with a concussion; we are so fucked. RyJo got hurt on a seemingly nothing hit; he immediately looked like he was in pain after.

    More teams might play it more if the Sens win a Cup with it and that's bad for hockey.

    The trap isn't unbeatable. It also requires a lot of team discipline to execute properly which a lot of teams in the league lack.

    It's just the fact that it slows the game down and usually, makes it boring. Yea, occasionally they blow a team up who can't adjust and turns over the puck constantly, and the counter-attacks can be enjoyable but the majority of the time it's just ugly hockey. New Jersey is just awful to watch, Ottawa isn't always as bad because Karlsson can be magical but still, I don't want to see more teams turn to the trap more often.

    NJ has played that way forever though, and won cups doing it, and the league didn't shift to everyone playing the trap. (Or at least, I don't remember it haha.)

    I dunno, I just take the position that no system is unbeatable and the trap in particular is pretty prone to good dump-ins and team speed. If more teams start playing it, more teams will start figuring out how to beat it. To me the boringness comes from teams playing right into the trap, which isn't necessarily the fault of the team playing the trap.

    lots of teams played the trap when NJ was great and winning, they all stopped, except NJ, after the rule changes from the lockout.

    When the team playing the trap has a goalie who's remarkable at playing the Puck like Pekka it's quite a sound gig though. I hope more people play it so they find ways to counter it then have it fall into oblivion for a while.

    Oh, what rule change was that? Or do you mean the trapezoid rule.
