The Jets like to brawl because they have "roles to play". The Oilers should just stay healthy.

The opposing view: Arctic Ice Hockey

Top Story: Edmonton's young stars were lacking in hydrogen to fuse and looked like a bunch of brown dwarfs or gas giants or something. The Jets beat the Sharks and fought a lot, so everyone was happy.

The Oilers are saying:

"It plays tricks on your mind when you’re not playing especially when you’re going through a life crisis. It played tricks on me but I really want this."

--Brandon Davidson, on the psychological toll cancer takes on a person.

Ben outlined Davidson's trail to Oklahoma City this summer:

Not that he's taken the easy road. Davidson has faced adversity in his career, the proper sort rather than crap used to fill second intermissions on TSN. But in 2013 Davidson didn't so much survive that adversity as render it irrelevant.

The Opponent is saying:

"I've talked to a few people and they said you know, everyone's trying to prove themselves and everybody's going to want to play a role if they're a fighter, they're going to go out there and fight and take the body"

--Scott Kosmachuk, on the Jets' brawling ways. Everyone has to play a role. That's how Alex Plante was concussed at this same tournament - fighting a talentless goon.
