Beauchemin really bothered me last year with a horrible first impression (bad pinches, trying to do too much, consistent turnovers), but this year he's been a lot better IMO. Some Leaf fans either like what he brings, others just don't like him. Personally, I think he's a good second-pairing defender that would be ideal on a lot of contenders, paired with a solid skating defender. Reason why I think he's been a lot better is because I haven't noticed him as much - which is good in his case.

I'd certainly rid the Maple Leafs of a few other defenders (i.e. Mike Komisarek and Brett Lebda) before Beauchemin, but he seems to be the one of the few who would bring some value back that we can move.
