I'm not overrating him, I'm simply calling him for the #2/3 versatile two-way defenceman that he is -- currently playing the role of #1 in Toronto. Beauchemin is far from overpaid, especially with the way the UFA market has taken off.

Who do you think is available that is a defenceman of his calibre? Which one comes with a year remaining at less than he would recieve in UFA?
Discounting availability (since we don't know who or what is available anyway) the kind of player we need is a Brent Burns type player. Two-way, good skating, puck moving reliable in every situation guy.

I doubt we'll get a player as good as Burns, but a player in that mold is what we need.
