Beach wasn't drafted too high, he just hasn't lived up to his draft status. Every scout in the league that year had him as a top-20 prospect.. some even as high as the top-5. He was deserving of his selection at the time, which is all that matters.

Bickell is a guy I've liked to compare him to for a long time, in terms of perception. Just because a kid, especially a big guy like Beach, doesn't light the AHL on fire doesn't mean he can't be a solid contributor to an NHL team. Yes, he'd need to limit the diving. Yes, he'd need to bring it on a more consistent basis, but he's capable of doing that IMO. The only way we'll find out is if he's ever given a shot.
