Kane doesn't strike me as a guy that needs somebody to protect him. From the sounds of it, Eager was taking too many bad penalties to justify his role as an energy line winger. Patrice Cormier has seemingly cracked their lineup full time now and fills in a spot as a physical forward. Ditto Spencer Machacek who plays an agitating style and represents a little more offense than Eager.
