Dykhuis is way overpaid in the AHL, but to me Hainsey has played well, and Beauchemin has been solid again. But I guess they are worried about the playoffs, as each game is so important now.
I think Dykhuis would be mediocre wherever he played. He's the kind of player that shouldn't be wearing the Hab jersey anymore--no intensity, no guts, no aggressiveness, and average skills--not exactly a player in the Bob Gainey mold. However, there's no team out there with six Chris Chelioses in the line up, and everyone has to deal with their share of mediorcity these days. We could do worse than to have Dykhuis on the Habs. At least he can skate.
