If Beaulieu plays 1000+ games and picks up 400 points or more like Breezer did, not sure how anyone can complain.

Brisebois was actually considered a contender for 1st overall a couple of seasons before his draft,he actually had a productive career.Too many people expected Patrice to live up to early expectations IMO and the pressure must have been huge.MAB shouldn't be compared to either Beaulieu or Brisebois as his career has been made on his PP abilities or very selected minutes defensively.Beaulieu is just starting his pro career in the AHL,with Lefebrve,Dufresne and Brisebois helping to teach the Habs young Dmen,I think Nathan's defensive game will improve immensely.Offensively Beaulieu and Subban can lead the Habs PP for yrs. to come after he learns to be responsible defensively(pinching in at the right times).Already he's better than MAB at 28yrs.IMO.
