Oiler's top six is getting less soft IMO.

-RNH standing up Brendan Morrow last year, and has shown he won't shy away from the physical stuff, is also the kind of guy to "take numbers"
-Yakupov getting a game misconduct for the elbow to the head today
-Hemsky has always been willing to get hit to make a play

We just need a big 2C.
Hall hitting a 19 year old isn't nothing special.

Anyone can elbow anyone in the head. Gilbert had a fine for a headshot last year or the year before.

Hemsky has always been that guy, his body just hasn't be able to hold up.


I'm not going to get too excited at this point. Yes the team will be less soft as time goes on, but it's not only about being less soft. Be nice to be the team that is out there initiating contact play after play, at the NHL level.
