No more than when Kovalchuk was benched for a game last year for his defensive play, did people start thinking he wasn't still one of their best forwards, let alone not among their top 6.

It's called coaching.
BUt this isn't a one time thing like Kovalchuk or Ribeiro, it's been happening regularly this year. And before someone decides to cry again and say that i'm trying to blast the Sens again, i'm not saying Rachunek isn't any good! I'm just saying that his value isn't maximal right now, that's all.
