Sens were definitely running around looking for crushing hits. Virtually every Oiler forward got pasted in this game.
Ya enforcement doesn't work. I honestly think that kind of feisty attitude can be instilled in guys. Neither Smid nor Petry were mean by any stretch when they came into the league. They weren't even particularly physical. Now they're both tough customers. Not bruisers but tough to play against.
That's never gonna be Eberle or Nuge's game, but Hall and Yakupov could certainly play a lot tougher, at the very least like Perron and Gordon.
But also, the Sens lost. I guarantee the guys would rather be pasted all 82 games and win them than get through games unscathed but lose them.
