I am going to defend Kyle Beach here a little bit. This is completely based on last season. He was out for the majority of the year with an injury (can't remember off the top of my head). Prior to that he had started off the season ver well but only played something like 8 games. He had 0 off ice issues during the time on the shelf that I am aware of and contributed to the team by doing a suprisingly nice job on color commentary. This might have been the organization attempting to keep him busy but it seems to have been a big success. When he did come back, he picked the game back up quickly and finished the season strong as well.
That being said, I don't see him making the roster without having an amazing start to this season. If that does happen, I wouldn't be suprised to see him called up but I won't hold my breath. That injury last season really was a massive setback to him career wise as it was starting to look like he was turning a corner.
