I don't see Edmontons players fitting that mold. There are a lot of lineups you look at and the teams look soft as hell. You have to see how the players play though.
I agree with this, and it's why I wouldn't call Hall or Hemsky soft. Hemsky is a nutcase, he is always willing to take a hit to make a pass. Hall, is getting a lot tougher as time goes by, hell he dropped the gloves with an AHL goon earlier this year.
The bottom 6 isn't bad, Hartikainin, Eager, and Hordi are all pretty tough guys, and on our defense, Fistric and Peckham are tough as nails, and well, Smid can get some nasty streaks in him as well.
