Beauchemin plays on Toronto's top pair (matching up against the other team's top units) and averages the exact same TOI as Dion Phaneuf (Dion playing a substantially larger percentage of his time on the PP). They are aslo perfect partners and Toronto has nobody to replace his skillset in the near future.
Have you ever thought it may be better to say nothing at all than almost single-handedly make an entire fan-base look dumb by way of the things you say?
It wouldn't take Vancouver's best players? You don't say?
Beauchemin gets minutes, that's why he's been exposed on countless occasions. It's not hard to see he's a good defensemen but needs to be sheltered in order to become more consistent, the type of defender you want.
