I cringed a bit when Clifford fought Peckham. He can hold his own against anyone but when you give up 30 + pounds to a guy, the odds of getting hurt are exponentially higher. From personal experience, I hated fighting the bigger guys. The big ones will lean on you when you bring the fight close to eliminate their reach advantage and next thing you know you're struggling just to get your arms free while trying to avoid the short jabs. The main reason Westgarth didn't play is Murray didn't want to give up any more speed to the Oilers. If the Oilers were a slower team, Kevin plays but that is one vulnerable fourth line, especially on the right, with him in the lineup.
