Funny that Beauchemin got the call and then got sent down suddenly in favour of Dykhuis, without getting in a game, don't you think? Assuming he practised with the team, is it possible CJ/BG decided they didn't want him in a game situation, after all?

All season, we've been speculating on which call-ups might have to do with showcasing for trades. The circumstances and late season timing of this one might again cause that kind of speculation.

My guess? Dykhuis could fit into a 3rd pairing on three quarters of the lineups in the league, and a 2nd pairing on at least a couple of teams that are borderline playoff contenders.
