And again ... I am probably neutral on a trade for Beauchemin depending on what the package looks like. I guess I am more open-minded than most and since nobody has said HELL YA ! ...not even me .... I suppose by default that makes me the biggest supporter.

But he isn't a 5-6. He's a middle pair having a tough year making obvious bad plays. (... as was Rivet when we got him). Sometime moving a veteran player off a bad team can have very positive results.
I sit where you do if it's for the right assets going the other way. I doubt this board will be happy with anyone that's actually available.
