I honestly am not at all worried about it. Yak has played in NA for a while now. He knows the NA game. He knows it's somewhat more "beligerant and rambunctious" aka "dirtier" than most of the overseas nations.
I think he's simply willing to say what a lot of others also know but just don't say as blatantly.
Hell we can see with our own eyes that North American players play a more borderline/aggressive style... and that's part of the "Canadian way"... for better or worse.
Once Yak and the rest of the Oilers are together (if the lockout ever ends) I have no doubt they will bond well together and I don't think there will be any problems with Yak seeing his own teammates as dirty players.
Remember also that the Oilers in general are a pretty soft team and he'll fit right in as we all complain about other teams pushing the Oilers around and being aggressive with the young guns.
