We didn't do anything after the Steckel or Tampa Bay hit on Sid. Our pacifist fans and owners chalked it up to being 'unfortunate'. We got weaker and smaller since then. And since then we've had Letang and now Geno knocked out with concussions. How coincidentally 'unfortunate'.
that reply is 100% irrelevant to what I said.

Goons do not prevent injuries during hockey plays. They may prevent cheap shots somewhat, but they don't prevent clean plays from going badly.
