The way I look at it is he's a player who is struggling confidence-wise, so ok, you bench him for a period to get your message across. But with someone who is having head problems already I feel like it's necessary to give them a chance to redeem themselves. No doubt this is going to get in his head probably more than it should.

Edit: Although he has sucked recently and maybe it was a good choice to sit him and really drive that message home... I'm sure the coach knows what he's doing.
They need to get Dubinsky going before the playoffs roll around... Sitting him on the bench the entire game is not going to help accomplish that goal. We've had other players take stupid penalties and not get the same treatment.
