Anybody else wonder that as soon as the oilers bounce back and start to respond with some physical hockey that the injuries start?

For instance in the case of Eberle I don't know how the knee injury was incurred but I would say the Nashville game might be the most physical I'd seen him play in his career. I think he threw one check and actually entered a scrum. He might even have looked upset at somebody

Do they still give out the Lady byng trophy?

ps that was a rhetorical question but perhaps a sad state of hockey today that they do still give it out but that so few players today win it. Seems distributed to either Pavel Datsyuk, or Martin St. Louis over last decades. I realize the list of possible candidates grows shorter but..

This used to be something valued. Sportsmanship. Now I wonder.
