A guy like Miller, on the other hand, may not improve because he isn't being corrected on his mistakes by continuing to get ice.
I do not think it is as black and white as you are making it here. There are other ways to correct mistakes aside from benchings or lower ice time, even in a Torts system. Some players need "tough love" to get them going versus others who just need a pat on the back and a talking to.
Players don't see things the way fans do.
