I see the trap from time to time, and it has been there from the day hockey was born.
Teams have to play according to how the game is going, as some teams are more talented
on offence than others, it is only normal to beef your defense then, so you don't get thrashed
on the scoreboard.
I have great respect for a team that knows exactly how to defend as well as play the offence.
I don't really know what people expect when they constantly complain about the "trap", as that
expression is grossly exagerated and over used. Any team can go to that aspect of the game
if they want, if they have a lead in the third period, or are defending against a more powerful
What would you suggest, just let both teams charge up and down the ice scoring at "will", that
would be very boring for me after the first few goals, as I like to see the strategy of the game
and see how the teams are going to stop goals as well as score them.
