When you become top NHLers, expect to be hit harder, slashed harder, cross-checked harder etc etc. When that day comes, if it ever does for Hall because I can see his career being cut-short, they'll be played just as hard, if not harder then the Sedins get played each game.
Sedins took a beating in our Cup run. I mean, look at the top defense pairings they had to endure; Keith, Seabrook, Weber, Suter, Boyle, Murray, Chara, Seidenberg and others as well. Some people may laugh that I mentioned Boyle and Murray because Boyle isn't that physical, but it doesn't take a physical defensemen to slash, and crosscheck. Murray may not be a top defender, but he's a tank. I'm sure there was someone else I'm missing from SJ.
I'd love to see how Hall, Eberle and RNH handle this gauntlet of defense during a Cup run, let alone adding physical forwards as well.
I'd love to see who the whiners would be after that.
