Beauchemin is the incorrect guy at the incorrect price. Plain and simple.
Even if we were to upgrade from Wallin or Huskins with him, it makes no sense to do it.
To the Leaf fan who is wondering why we're not excited about him, we're not excited because there is no way for us to win the trade for Beauchemin unless you want to take a non roster player, salary dump, and mid round pick. Doesn't seem like Burke's cup of tea. He needs to win a trade, not lose the next one.
Lets take a look at the roster and see what is tradable
Heatley - no
Patty - no
Pavelski - no
Clowe - no
Seto - Unless you can give us your 1st rounder to start off, no. Still RFA. No rush here to trade him unless its for a SIGNIFICANT UPGRADE.
Mitchell - We could part with him
Couture - HELL NO
McGinn - IMO, HELL NO. A good trading chip, but has too much upside to just trade off for a Dman we don't need.
Nichol - no
Ferriero- We could part with him
Mayers - no
McCarthy - We could part with him
Wingels - no
Mashinter - no
Boyle - no
Vlasic - no
Murray - no
Wallin - Sure, has a NTC though
Huskins - Sure
Demers - hell no
Joslin - We could part with him
So you pretty much look at it, and the only players that would clear enough salary to bring him here would have to be some kind of combination of Wallin, Huskins, and/or Mitchell.
As for trading draft picks, I strongly oppose and I'm sure most here would as well.
