What you saw in the playoffs is Hiller behind a great defense. What you saw in the regular season was Hiller behind an average defense. Beauchemin was injured most of the year and Whitney&Wisniewski were brought in at the deadline. During most of the season the Ducks defense looked something like this:

Pronger-McIver/Mikkelson
Festerling-Niedermayer
Montador-Hedican/Brookbank

Hardly world beaters there apart from Pronger/Nieds

I think ShadowFlyer and i already agreed any trade would be made on condition that the Flyers and Beauchemin already had a deal in place to be signed after the trade. That eliminates the need for conditional picks.

So while the Ducks are only trading away Beauchemins rights, the Flyers receive, in essence, a signed Beauchemin.
