He looked like the best D man on the Dogs PP IMO (and St Denis looked great as well)).

I think management looked at one week training camp and at their roster and figured to let Beaulieu continue with his progress.

I've seen most of the Bulldogs games and I feel Beaulieu has played as well as Tinordi. But what Beaulieu can bring to the Habs to some degree they already have on the big team: Markov, Subban, Kaberle, Diaz & Weber. What Tinordi can bring we only have Boullion, Georges and Emelin maybe.

I think the decision was based on what we already have on the big team.
