Life After The Trap

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
...Like the notion that the Wild have completely changed their style of play now that they've acquired high-profile talented players Kim Johnsson, Pavol Demitra and Mark Parrish. They haven't. Or the belief Lemaire would still rather have his players never leave their own zone, and if they must, they leave one at a time and only for a moment. He actually doesn't mind if they leave the zone as long as they come back. Further, there is no truth to the rumor that Lemaire signed his extension on the condition that his players don't give up an odd-man rush for the next six months. But the thing about urban legends is that, well, they become legend or take on the appearance of fact. Lemaire knows that.
