If he is just trying to win a game, you can argue Ruff's decisions were rational.

If he is trying to give Grigs every chance to succeed and evaluate whether or not he should remain with the team, his actions tonight were highly irrational.
Has it occured to any of you that Ruff has already decided to keep Grigs up and is easing him into the NHL. Thus not needing to "test" him in every situation.
