Edit: all this to say...at the same age, Beaulieu is nearly identical to Subban. Same deficiencies, same potential, same arrogance.
Nah, Subban went from off the radar at 17, to a surprise addition to Team Canada at 18, to part of the core with Ellis, Tavares and Eberle at 19. In Belleville, his big jump came after the 18 year old WJC and into the OHL playoffs. The next season he was just ridiculously dominant. Pull up the numbers, they'll corroborate all this.
Those fans who thought Weber would turn out better just liked the idea of a solid, less flashy dman. Anyone who watched enough without bias knew better.
Beaulieu hasn't done anything close to what Subban did at 19 internationally. With his Q team, he's a key part of a great team, not a dominant player on a very good team.
