I think best case scenerio he can match Subbans offensive ceiling but I dont see him becoming the two-way beast Subban has turned into.
Subban was asked to do a lot more offensively than Beaulieu is. SJ has a powerhouse team so he doesn't have to try and rush every time he is on the ice.
Beaulieu has a lot of the same tools as Subban but a different frame, Beaulieu is 3 inches taller and Subban is build thick and sturdy like a football running back. Beaulieu will probably play at 6'3" 215lbs in the NHL in a couple years.
