Surprised that Dallas hasn't come up, especially with Jamie Benn unsigned and Brenden Morrow possibly suffering a concussion.
Loui Eriksson-Derek Roy-Jaromir Jagr
Ray Whitney-Cody Eakin-Michael Ryder
Eric Nystrom-Vernon Fiddler-Reilly Smith
Colten Sceviour-Tom Wandell-Ryan Garbutt
Even if you sub AHL agitator/fighter Antoine Roussel in for Sceviour or Garbutt on the 4th, I don't see many players there, with the exception of maybe Nystrom, where you can go "That guy is definitely tougher than his counterpart on the Oilers". Eriksson doesn't play physical, nor does Ryder, nor Eakin. Derek Roy is one of the softest guys I've ever seen. Jagr and Whitney weren't physical players in their prime and are even less inclined now. Even when you toss Benn and Morrow back in there, it's not that huge of a difference.
Alex Goligoski-Trevor Daley
Stephane Robidas-Brendn Dillon
Phillip Larsen-Aaron Rome
I don't think you can make a case for them being any tougher than the Oilers D, either.
