No wonder you're such a big fan of Guy Boucher. His PHD (or whatever) in Sports Psychology gives him an edge in dealing with his players. He looks beyond the conventional "bench a struggling player" approach. This intangible makes Boucher such an upgrade over Jacques Martin. He would never sit down a 26 year old forward with tons of skill just because he made a few mistakes, or took a couple shifts off. Boucher knows that would crush the player's will and demotivate the entire team.
The same Guy Boucher who benched PK Subban in the AHL?
