The fact is, Peverley hasn't been good enough. He's on pace for 26 poitns (down from 61 last year). Folks wanted to blame Chris Bourque for Peverley's struggles but even when Perv got to skate with Krejci and Lucic or between Lucic and Horton he didn't look good.
Julien tried the carrot, it was time for the stick. Hopefully, there's more to come
(lookin' at you 16).
That said, while I don't think last night's benching was about a deal in the works, Peverley is not above getting traded. Spooner looks like he could be on this team next year and a 3rd line with both Spoons and Peverley would be very light...
Do you mean 18?
