Morgan Ellis is an excellent, gritty shut down defender and at 6'2" people should be fine with his size.

Beaulieu is still developing his physical game but nobody should count him out. He certainly isn't soft.
Yeah, our future is fine in this regard. If there's anything hurting the bluelines toughness right now, it's Subban being lowballed.

It would have been nice getting someone bigger and younger than Boullion for that bottom end gritty role, but I guess the price fits. Assuming Subban replaces Kaberle you have at least one physical d-man per pairing. I think big hits are more intimidating than fights anyway.
