Ugh, yes I am serious. I'm bored so I will take the time to explain to you why the situations are nothing alike:
Semin: 5G, 5A, 10Pts, -4 (with a cap hit of $6.7million)
Ward: 4G, 6A, 10Pts, +5
Washington Capitals: 11th in the Eastern Conference, 3W-7L in the last 10 games.
In case you missed it:
Seguin: 13G, 12A, 25Pts, +19 (Leads team)
Boston Bruins: 15 game streak without a regulation loss.
The players you mentioned on the Captials are playing bad on the ice
. The Captials are playing bad and Bruce Boudreau was desperate and was eventually fired. The Bruins, on the other hand, had a 15-game points streak on the line. They benched a young star, not because he was playing bad, but because he had missed a team meeting. There are going to be people who will say the Bruins' winning ways ended because they didn't play their leading scorer. No one was going to say that the Capitals lost because they benched two under-achievers, because they were already losing. If anything, if Washington turned their fortunes around, Boudreau would be praised- but there was nothing to lose. Now, if the Capitals get on a 10game win streak and then bench Alex Ovechkin because he misses team meetings, you can say that Washington runs their team with the same level of integrity and accountability as the Boston Bruins. But we both know that isn't going to happen. So yes, I am serious.
