My point was it would impress if Therrien scratched a veteran for making a mistake that led to a goal. I'd like to see the vets held accountable. That said I wouldn't scratch Plekanec for that play alone (though I wouldn't be scratching Eller either), but he snowed the goalie, drew a penalty, and they scored. Did Pleks get benched? Ice time reduced? Anything? Nope. To me that's a problem.

The vets can do no wrong in recent years, and the young guys who need to play to develop get benched without much cause behind it. Imagine if PK was playing and did what Pleks did, he wouldn't have seen the ice the rest of the game.
