I'll post my opinion later in the thread.... I want everyone's opinions on this topic to be seen.
Was it to send a message? Yes, definitely.


Was it effective? Not sure. Not the only one to float.

Was Peverly the correct player chosen? Removing him improve the team, not the opposite

You think he might be trade bait? His salary is affordable but i'm not sure there's takers outthere unless the Bruins sweeten the pot.

All in all, there's 3-4 players who deserved to be benched. Problem is: we don't have the depth to do so. Removing Horton or Lucic might very satisfying from a fan standpoint but it make the team less competitive. The odds of seeing Chairelli upgrading significantly the team are slim, very slim. I just don't see PC paying a premium unless a good young player is involved.
