But Beauchemin only has 171 points in 516 games.

It's funny that even with EJ's ****** offensive production this season and last, he still has career PPG that would be 34 over a full season. Yet he is getting pigeon-holed into being "just" a shutdown defenceman. There is literally no reason why he won't bounce back and get to this level, and beyond.
