They're Oilers, and they've been with the organization for very long time. Even Smyth who left and gave up a run to The Cup in order to return home to Edmonton - they're role models to the kids that being a hockey player in Edmonton is a privilege and they want to be here. That's the culture they're trying to build.
Even Nick Schultz who was given the A, he was a longtime player for Minnesota, before he came here.
As captain, one of Horcoff's roles is to answer the media, every game, every week. The media asks the question, and he answers them. He answered it correctly.
Seems to me, that its not the veteran leadership that lacks humility and points fingers. Its the OP.
Bingo, no matter what Horcoff does, haters will hate.
