I'm not trying to pick on Lucic but in the playoffs he took a dumb penalty against Dallas to start the comeback. He made several bad plays and yet was never benched. Johnny and Mony, plays die on their sticks numerous times even on the PP, they never miss a shift. Chucky on is knees watching us get scored on...etc etc.
I think it is a teaching tactic, which is why veterans don't get benched like rookies do. What on earth is Lucic going to learn by pulling him from the lineup?

The coach benches rookies and young players to send a message and promote good habits through an intolerance of bad ones. Veterans are benched when they are useless, and hurting the team on the ice.
