Oilers Plan To Get Tougher

from Robin Brownlee of the Edmonton Sun,

The Oilers made a philosophical decision last summer that they didn’t need Georges Laraque, letting the baddest man on the NHL planet know he wasn’t in the plans. When Big Georges took his feared fists to the Phoenix Coyotes, they wished him well and moved on.
It’s a decision the Oilers have regretted since, most recently Tuesday when Minnesota meathead Derek Boogaard flattened Ales Hemsky knowing there wasn’t a damn thing anybody could do about it.
