The Sens were hitting the Oilers BEFORE Hall's injury and after, regardless of this so called intimidation.

b) that the Oiler players will be happier. This happiness I guess will somehow extend into better playing but I haven't seen that with the arrival Mac or Gazdic.

c) that other teams will be intimidated by our enforcers so we can now punish other teams. Yup, other teams look like they're running scared when they play the Oil.

The Oilers picked up the toughest enforcer in the league SteveMac who promptly got injured. Then they have Gazdic. And Brown, so 1.5 enforcers. Aside from running around in their own zone, How is that working so far?
What would you know about how enforcers impact the game?
