It's pretty cowardly IMO, but if the benching is for other reasons, then while I still don't think Chucky was suffering (he's been working hard, I thought that's what counts), it's a better reason than being scared of the bruins.
It's actually clever. He doesn't want to hurt his confidence, but Galchy needs a day in the presser to get his head clear and see the game from a new vantage point. Therrien was able to do this without telling the kid he couldn't hack it. Great move.
