You have no clue what is effective and what isn't

Sorry that is just a fact some of you sideline players are going to have to come to terms with
Doesn't seem to work given all the cheapshots that are thrown against teams with goons in the lineup.

The only way your team doesn't get run around in the NHL is if you are the team doing the running. If I remember correctly, the Oilers got run out of Dallas the first time they played there, and then the second time they upped their physical game and actually gave Dallas a game. That's what the Oilers have to do. Guys like Hall, Yakupov, basically everyone in their lineup is going to have to initiate the physical play and intimidate the other team before they get intimidated.
