That's not what I heard. I heard that Gainey asked around if other GM's would be interested in picking him off waivers and had no takers, so Gainey sent him to Hamilton since the Dogs needed him badly only to lose him in waivers, when it turns out had he waited a couple more days he could have signed him to an AHL contract like they did with Hainsey and he would still be with us.

That's not to say that story is true, or that we wouldn't have lost Beauchemin to waivers this past season.
