A million dollar contract, then.
Nothing to lose with this deal. Veteran presence for handling some minutes at the start of the year with their big boys banged up, and then move to the press box to be the #7-8.
Good group of 8 d-men.
Terrific deal, the player still appears to have a lot left.
Ducks didn't want to sign him because of that third year.....Only signs him for that third year.
I'm guessing he challenges Larsson for a top-6 spot
Interesting point hahaha
I'm not sure you've seen him play the last year...
Good signing by the Ducks. He will likely retire as a Duck, which seems fitting
The single most destructive player I've ever witnessed the Colorado Avalanche have. Sure there's been worse players. Nate Guenin comes to mind. But Nate Guenin didn't think he was Gretzky and play outside his limitations. He also didn't get the minutes that Beauchemin had.
I hope the best for Beauchemin. He may turn it around. His first year for the Avs he was absolutely fantastic. The year prior in Anaheim he helped Lindholm become what he has become. But last season was a total disaster. Every single shift he just made bad play after bad play. Like I said, there have been worse hockey players. But those guys know they are bad and will dump the puck when in trouble or do something. Beauchemin made giveaway after giveaway. Bad pinch after bad pinch. He wandered all over the ice at the most confusing times for no reason. I've never witnessed a hockey player cause the severity of on ice damage to a hockey team that Francois Beauchemin caused last year.
Best place for him. Wish him the best. I imagine in limited minutes he'll do very well.
Don't forget the dozens of goals that he "shot blocked" into our own net. I've never seen so many pucks deflect off a single player into their own goal as I did this past season.
I remember that game we won 10-1 against you last year. Beauchemin was terrible in that game. Hope he did not play like that all year long.
Psh called that 1 a long time ago
Lets be fair, colorado makes everyone look bad
I was at that game with my brother, a Habs fan. We travelled across the country to see it. It was that game when I first noticed the constant roaming. You don't notice it as much on TV because the camera generally follows the puck. But when you're sat at the game you notice him just roaming out of position over and over again for no apparent reason. 2 on 1's and 3 on 1's over and over because Beauchemin was just roaming up on the other side of the ice but nowhere near the play or where the play was expected to be. Almost seemed like he was concussed. From this point on I noticed it more on television for the remainder of the season because it was stuck in my head.
I hope you sign Stuart.
That was exactly how he played all year long. He basically played like Erik Karlsson last year, except he couldn't skate, couldn't handle the puck and expected his partner to cover for his mistakes. He was also very good at deflecting shots into his own net.
He was a very large part in Colorado looking bad.
Beauchemin made Colorado look bad more than Colorado made Beauchemin look bad. That's saying something.
Nope, just the bad players do. Unfortunately, that was about 60% of our lineup last year, most of which went to UFA and do not have an NHL job. We still have a couple stragglers but not nearly what we had last season.
Nope, with Beauch the opposite was true.
The Avs were not a good team. Beauch made them the worst team in the last decade.
He was literally that bad. He alone easily was the reason for 75 of the goals against us last year.
That's the best strategy to do ... if you want Patch to score 4 goals
