With The Return Of Beauchemin, Ducks Get Better

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Barring a setback, (Francois) Beauchemin will join them Friday night, and the Ducks suddenly don’t look like anybody’s idea of a walk in the playoff park.

“I’m pretty excited about it,” Beauchemin told ESPN.com. “I’ve been feeling really strong.”

Although he does not boast the profile of the Ducks’ other twin defensive giants, captain Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger, Beauchemin’s contributions to the Ducks’ emergence as a league power cannot be underestimated. During the Ducks’ run to the Cup in 2007, he averaged an incredible 30:33 a night in ice time during the playoffs.
