York

When York was highsticked by Iginla, did he need stitches. TSN mentioned that it was a scary moment for the Oilers on the highlights.

Another question about York, is why are teams taking cheapshots at York. He's been slashed on his wrist, 4 times or more, slashed on his ankle, highsticked and whatever. Why are other teams taking liberties and cheapshots at York.

well it seems our enforcer doesnt want to enforce. im not surprised teams are taking liberties at our players, especially the smaller ones. when a guy like chimera has to stand up for his teammates you know we are in trouble. we are missing grit and determination and most of all, a nasty edge.

Well, if the NHL takes out the instigator rule, teams will think twice about taking cheapshots. Teams know you can get away with this crap because of the instigator rule. We all saw what happened with Gator and Chimmer when they protected their teammates. Both got 17 minutes in penalties. 2 minutes for instigating, 5 minutes for fight and a 10-minute misconduct. Get rid of the instigator and you'll see less cheapshots. Who knows if Laraque would have protected, he'll most likely have been given the heaveho and tossed out of the game.

But wouldn't you rather have your 4th-line 'enforcer' out of the game rather than one of your top 2 or 3 defencemen? I dunno...BG can be a force out there even without fighting, but I don't know why he doesn't bring his "A" game more often.

Laraque is in the PB and then the other team will take more cheapshots knowing Laraque won't protect them. I'm telling you, get rid of the instigator and teams will think twice about taking cheapshots.

This isn't new, its been going for some time now. Ever since
they got away with it, they know that the worst they get is a slashing
penalty and meanwhile they knocked him out of the game. If they have a good penalty kill going on, they'll do it. Watch Vancouver work on him without impunity

Some role player needs to step up and slash Naslund if they go after York, or anyone else for that matter.

York was slashed in the Calgary game because he was one of the few (only?) forwards getting into the high traffic areas. This guy is serious good, and Lowe made a great trade to get him.

I don't think you can fault the Flames for doing what we wish our guys were doing, though.

At this point, Georges Laraque is no longer a hockey player. He should be on the farm getting his desire back.

It was quite clear that the Flames game plan was to take York out of his game. Great vision by Flames coach, and every Flames did that. Great game plan although a little short for York himself to score. I wonder the Oilers has an insight game plan. For tonight game, for instance. They may get out of the gate with furious and emotion and end up in the box to be scored on, or they will be so passive as a "disciplined" team (because of the PK nightmare) to be outplayed on most perspecives? either way they will fail, unless the coach can come up to something a little more sophisticated, something to fire up each of the Oilers. Without a clear game plan which can bring some success, the Oilers coach will have hard time regain the confidence on themselves and on their own coaches.
Let's Go, Oil.

If Edmonton would have done that to Iggy what the Flames did to York, the Oilers would have been in the PB the entire game. That's the way it is. The first goal should never have counted. A Flame was on top of Salo and three others were in his crease yet no call. On the other end an Oilers player was pushed into the Calgary goalie yet Edmonton gets goaltender interference. I'm not blaming the refs but they are inconsistence. Calling penalties on one team and missing the obvious penalty on the other. Why wasn't a penalty called when Iggy speared York or when Gauthier hit York from behind or tried to take out Stoll's knee. A penalty is a penalty and should be called on both teams and not just one team. York and Stoll could have been seriously injured in those incidents and both were extremely lucky they didn't get injured.
