Does Flyers' lack of response to Steve Staios hit bother you?

ok fine. lets go back to the hit on Talbot. Say Couturier breaks his hand fighting someone on the Isles. would you be ok with that? I understand we need to protect players on our team, but thinking that we need to start fights everytime someone is elbowed or hit is foolish.
Simmonds got hit in the Nashville game. Everyone knows he can handle himself. If he had a problem with the hit he can deal with it.
As far as the Talbot hit in the Isles game, there was 5 minutes left and the Flyers were up by a goal. there was no need to do something dumb and give the Isles a PP. They play the Isles 4 more times. You take a number and you deal with it down the line
