He's a guy who plays better as the number three (look how well he did in Anaheim), but he's being asked to play above his talent level. That's not his fault.
That had more to do with being protected by Pronger and Neidermeyer, but I agree Beauch is a descent #3 slightly overpaid, but a #3 on half the teams in the league so that's were he fits.
