If it becomes a recurring theme, then yeah sit them for a few games. You have to give them at least a little bit of leash though.

Also something you should do is reward them when they play well. Vitale has been lights out and nobody has really looked good with Malkin and Neal. Stick him up on that line for a few shifts to send the message that if you play the right way, you get rewarded for it.
Boy....one would wonder why Jeffrey hasn't been slotted into that LW spot next to, Malkin.
