St-Denis is still by far Hamilton's best dman. Tinordi has shown good flashes (sometimes with surprisingly good speed, other times with toughness), but a bit like Emelin last year, it's the little things he does wrong. Like his positionning around the net, or when he has to react quickly with the puck. Despite some flaws, and maybe a lack of intensity, I think Beaulieu is adapting better to the AHL so far.

But of course like Montreal said, it doesn't help when he plays with guys like Pateryn and Ellis (while Beaulieu plays with St-Denis).

I am confident Tinordi's gonna be a solid NHLer, but it will take a few years.
