Beaulieu hasn't done either of that, improving his putrid defense to somewhat mediocre doesn't do much.
Not going to list an order of defensemen, but I suspect I can come close to 25 just of listing in random order.
That's not 25, but it's 22 defensemen I would take over Beaulieu, and then there's lots of other players I would put in the same tier as Beaulieu (Tinordi, Harrington, McIlrath, Koekkoek ect) that you could make the case for.
Because YOU would do that doesn't mean that the rest of the league would.
For example, just compare the ratings of the players you've listed above to Beaulieu's on this very site (Hockey's Future) and see where he ranks according to them.
