They might be full time NHLers but that doesn't mean they will be better than Myers. I personally think Myers would bounce back with us so I don't mind trading a Beaulieu for him. At the end of the day you're trading potential of developing for potential of rebounding so it comes down to which you think is more likely.

This is not necessarily a bad thing. If DD gets traded for a shutdown center you can't say "Oh he doesn't put up as many points therefore we are worse". A shutdown guy would take away defensive responsibilities from Plekanec/Eller and open them up for more offence. Having players that are better suited to their roles helps even if they are less skilled.
