If they lost KL or Benn because of how he was playing, he might rethink it. Or be forced to by the rest of the team. Beating on him is at best a temporary fix, and not even certain of being that.
I don't really disagree just an observation. It's all a what if situation, but one that Eakins needs to think about before every matchup. For instance today we play PHX who has Doan, Hanzal, Klinkhammer, Korpikoski and Schlemko who I believed caused issues last time. I don't think Doan or Hanzal drop them, but who is going to keep those 5 honest? Do we have a counter on our team? We just seem to set ourselves up to get ran over game after game and then wonder why a guy like Garbutt can run around doing whatever he wants. Nothing against Garbutt other than there should've been a 2 minute minor, but we can't continue to be the team getting ran over game in and game out. Now with our PP sucking teams will even take more liberties as who cares, we won't be able to do anything about it.

This is almost like Reilly and the Eskimos, guys weren't afraid to hit him late because the Esks really couldn't make teams pay.
