If a BC product in Beach is piling up 40-goal, 200 PIM seasons in Chicago while Hodgson is a 50-60 point 'character' #2 center here, this will hurt.
Shift in draft philosophy. They're betting Beach won't reach his potential because of his character...can't say I disagree with that assessment at this point. That said, much the same was said about Perron...
