Beech put up 62 points last year in the AHL and he isn't going to be playing the type of role that Preems will be playing (read that as, "a role limiting his offensive output"), so i don't think it is that unreasonable to suggest that Beech may end up with more pts at the end of the year.

note that DOES NOT mean i think Beech is better player or anything of the sort.
I doubt that he will even play a full year in the NHl this year and if he does will still not score more. Primeau is no dynamo but will have more by the end of the year and he will be counted on to contribute more goals this year without a doubt. His role is to stop the other teams but he will be counted on for some offense as well. Beech couldn't make the Pens when they had a bad team now with the people you added don't see him making it now all of a sudden, 62 point is nice but Peter White scores that every and it means squat unless you are a young prospect which Beech is not more of a suspect.
