I'm sure that if he needs to be scratched it would only be a one game "WAKE UP" message from the staff and not a permanent thing. As much as young players need ice time and can't be sitting in the press box (i've argued this many times); sometimes you also need to send them a message. If Carbo feels that Sergei needs a wake up message to get the fire back in his game, well then so be it.
It reminds me of what was done with Ribeiro from time to time, although it wasn't traumatic enough--it took the trade to Dallas to wake him up. It also didn't help much with Ryder or Latendresse last season, both of whom underachieved.
