In both cases it's a young player being disciplined by a coach. It's the same thing.

Not saying it's right or that I think he shouldv'e been benched but it is the same thing. We don't know what's going on behind the scenes but even based on what we have seen (slew foot, several fights with teammates, dumb penalties, risky plays on the ice) it's pretty evident that he's got some growing up to do. If you tell a guy to do something and he doesn't do it, you've got to discipline him. RC had just come on and had the 'interim' label slapped on him. Maybe PK was laughing him off and maybe he felt like he had to send a message... who knows?
