probably showed a bad attitude at practice and mailed it in.

benching does one of 2 things:

-lights a fire under your arse a la Wellwood
-crushes your confidence
... but it can also help a player get another look on the game from outside the ice. Wellwood looked out of place and got benched and it helped him IMO. Burmistrovs situation is a bit similar. He's reliable on the D but hasn't had the best positioning and feeling for the offensive game to be productive. It could help him.
