Was it to send a message? Yes, as well as to maybe give Pevs a look from high above.
Was it effective? Remains to be seen if it was effective for Peverley himself, but it sure didn't make the rest of the team play any better.
Was Peverly the correct player chosen? He was one of many that could benefit from a benching.
You think he might be trade bait? No more than any other player. Why would you lessen his value by benching him, if you're trying to get something from him.

Could be Clode's already tried different ways of getting him going, so I'll defer to him, but there are a couple things I find interesting: In the previous game, Pevs was used on the Power Play. I find it strange that he's deserving of being benched, when in the very game before he was deserving of PP time.

How on Earth can Pandolfo be more deserving of ice than Peverley?

Caron - Spooner - Peverley should have been tried before benching any of those 3.
