Oilers and their media complaining, making excuses, and blaming everyone else but themselves....it's like the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. Never fails.

Of course RNH is going to be targeted in both the minors and the NHL. (And this is in general...has nothing to do with that game against the Aeros.) If their media hasn't come to terms with that, then they need to find a new day job. He's a top prospect who's still new on the scene. Guys want your tail. And RNH is only in the minors due to the lockout. He's an up and coming NHLer who has a lot of potential, and nothing would please a career minor-leaguer more than to rough him up. And when the lockout is over, NHLer's are gonna be after his arse. Consider it a compliment.

Honestly, I've had a fear of Granlund getting targeted. When there is some hype, there will be guys going after the player to make a point. Doesn't make it right, but it's expected. If the Oilers are gonna gripe every time someone takes some extra liberties with one of their young guys, then it's gonna be a long season after season after season for them. Call it karma for those years of tanking to get all those high draft picks.
