Ehh. Dupuis hasn't been great, but that typically hasn't been the only reason for a scratch. Who knows, Lemaire might've been trying to send him a message.
Bouchard gets the healthy scratch now and then, and so far it doesn't appear to be related to performance too much. In fact, the coaches have said in the past that they'll scratch a young guy after a good game as often as a bad. Just the way they deal with the young guys. They like to give them time off.. to reflect, I guess.
