Panthers coach on Koistinen benching: "He couldn't help us"

Speculation over an apparent divide between Florida coach Peter DeBoer and defenseman forward Ville Koistinen has reached a new low: watching his minutes drop from game to game, he was finally benched for the Panthers' visit to Washington on Saturday.

The Miami Herald reports his two shifts that evening represented a season-low, even following the loss of forward Gregory Campbell to an injury.

On top of the Clemmensen Fiasco, is this yet another case of a coach and his player not reading from the same book?
