My recollection is that Beagle is primarily a center in Hershey. He plays RW in DC because he's still making the transition to the NHL level.
Considering he was traded for Kovalchuk, I wouldnt consider his value "a little something". He was a big piece to that trade.
I think the 1st round pick was a bigger part of that trade package; Oduya, as a trade piece, was a needed piece as important as Niclas Bergfors (solid veteran blueliner/promising young offensive forward--two things Atlanta needed). Oduya did well in the Devils' system, but he struggled badly in Atlanta last year in his first full season with them.
Also, Lepisto signed this off-season with the Blackhawks to replace Chris Campoli. He's always been a third pairing defenseman who does sit a good deal.
