Typical case of a kid thinking talent alone is enough to play in the big league.. We are lucky the new management hired Brisebois and Lapointe to work with the kids, Beaulieu is a one that should benefit alot from this..
Well, prospects are pretty much never surefire but I would put my money on a guy like Beaulieu, who has the whole package to become a legit NHLer, rather than on guys who thrive in junior or in the AHL, but who are "good not not great" in every aspect of their game. A guy like Palushaj is a fine player, but you just feel that he's either not fast enough, not strong enough, not intense enough, or that he doesn't have a good enough shot find his spot in the big leagues.
