A few of you need to learn the difference between being injury-prone and being tough.
For the record, Gagner and Hemsky have enough toughness. Gagner fought Beauchemin over a hit on Hall. Hemsky has had runs taken at him his entire career. In the past, the other team would primarily target him as he was one of the few skilled players on the Oilers.
I'd rather stand pat and develop a supremely talented team than lose value on stupid trades meant to try and form an idealized version of what a playoff team should be. It's a myth that size correlates with playoff success.
