For every marginal player (at the time) we lose and who becomes useful eventually, we find one ourselves (Bégin, Johnson, Huet).
With Hainsey, it was clear that he was not a "gainey-type" player, so it should come as no surprise that Gainey was willing to take the risk of sending him down and calling him back up.
With Beauchemin, the guy simply did not earn a spot on the team in 2004 and was picked off waivers. Every year, some Habs fans get overly excited about a couple of minor league d-men in the system (Descôteaux, Korneev, Razin, Archer, Shasby, O'Byrne, etc.) who never make it. Kudos to guys like NewsHabsEra who said he was worth keeping, but really, it's not that important.
Complaining about Clark is ridiculous. He was claimed in the expansion draft by Atlanta 8 years ago.
