A year ago Gionta told him something like "donít bring your junior stuff in the pros".

Holland was a solid acquisition but Bournival should be ahead of him imo. I like no BS (low maintenance) players with an insanely high compete level: Bournival, Gallagher, Plekanec, Eller, Leblanc, Gorges, Dumont...
I've said in the past that Beaulieu does remind me a bit of Hainsey both on and off the ice, but he does have an interesting mix of skills and physical abilities so hopefully they work closely with him to round out the rest of his game.

I like the way Bournival plays but I have big concerns about his offensive upside, so that's why I have Holland higher as he's got smarts, instincts and vision. A very creative player, whereas I find Bournvial to be more of a hard worker with good physical abilities. It's close between them, but I've been more impressed with Holland in Hamilton then I have with Bourinval.
