Wait what? simmonds, lucic, and hartnell are effective because they take penalties? What kind of terrible logic is this?

I have never heard any coach say he is fine with his 4th liners taking penalties. Those guys sit when they do that. Their game is to agitate and NOT go to the box while doing it.
