Face it, neither injury was a dirty play. It sucks that they got hurt and I wish them quick recoveries, but calling Oiler journalists and fans hypocrites isn't accurate. Our guys have been targeted with questionable plays like the knee on Eberle and fans and media have a right to bring that up. Hall did nothing wrong, and defending that position isn't hypocrisy.
It is hypocrisy. They are going to get targeted. Our players are going to get targeted. any big name players are going to get targeted now as the AHL is the new NHL. But it's absolute hypocrisy when your players play with an edge like that. You don't do that and then go to the media and whine that you are getting targeted.
BTW - you guys aren't the only ones that have had to suffer through injuries.
No, but we've had a lot of questionable hits in the past 2 years not called.
