Optimize for quick removal should still help prevent damage.
NTFS is surprisingly robust against file system corruption. If you do suffer file system corruption, a chkdsk /R should fix it.

Though the drives are suppose to park themselves, its not a guarantee, so don't go throwing your drive around :).
