It didn't even result in a shot on goal but Hitchcock punished Zherdev. The next game he was demoted to 4th line

That is not sending a message or trying to improve the players game that is just being a ###.

Kane's D was horrendous when Q took over and Q benched him for a period before in his 1st year. But he never threw him on 4th line so he would learn D. You teach a young player like Zherdev the defensive aspects of game and hope for improvement. That is what Q did with Kane and although Kane is never gonna be a Selke winner his D has improved tremendously over what it was years ago
He was saying that that is what happened to Filatov. He just compared him to Zherdev at the beginning of the post.
