What's with Kyle Beach? The guy was supposed to be the next Todd Bertuzzi but he was traded 3 times in junior, he never got a sniff from the Canadian WJC team which is extremely rare for a top pick like him and is a team worse -18 in your AHL team.
Does he have attitude problems, is it his skating or is he not fully committed? He seems to have been passed on your deoth chart by other prospects.
Any info passed along would be great. Maybe it's time Beach could use a change of scenery and could be a nice peice to dangle for a big addition on trade day.
He's never played a game in Chicago, so how could anyone say he needs a change of scenery. He plays for a crappy AHL team and that would bring the worst out of any player. To answer your question though, the Hawks skating instructor said he has a ways to go. I'd consider dealing him for someone like Ellerby (top end talent in the NHL on an ELC).
yep.... only trade I consider involving Beach is getting a better prospect/young Player back.
Beach is what this team needs going into the future. All we need to find out in which role. I think he will become a good Top9 LW for us
That's the best thing about Beach (and Morin to a lesser extent). You can play him on any line so you know he's going to pan out and help the team, it's just a question of how much and what line he plays on.
Wow, I thought he was a 3rd line AHL player. Didn't think that was worth a lottery pick in a great draft year.
Anywyas the sellers market is small and the prices are high. Chicaog is desperate to make it and thye will overpay at the deadline if they want an impact player like all the other teams have.
Pretty sure this year's draft isn't considered 'great' by many. I do believe next year's is supposed to be quite top heavy.
As for Beach I don't want to see him traded. He has a lot to potentially offer the Hawks, and if it takes another year or 3 before we see it, then so be it. We don't need to trade him when his value is on the low end.
