I agree, I thought yesterday's game was the strongest physical game from the Oilers this year.

I missed most of the Dallas game so I didn't see that hit. I don't remember the other play at all. Good on Hemsky for doing it once in while, but I still think he doesn't do nearly enough to protect himself out there. He's been made into a marked man by physical defenders. I don't care if it means taking penalties like Smyth did against Kunitz, I would never hold it against him if Hemsky would feed these guys some lumber rather than get plowed over. I doubt his coaches or team mates would hold it against him either.
