He was solid, has been very good since his return, the Beaulieu-Pateryn pairing has been very good for the most part. Pateryn can do a lot of things, he plays solid and steady in his own end, he's big and strong, has a cannon of a shot, can dish out some big hits as well. I'd like to see him get a little quicker though but it's going to be interesting to see what he can do going forward. Has impressed me a lot more then Ellis, and I'd say Pateryn has been one of the biggest surprises this season for me as I thought he might lose out on ice time to Ellis but it's been the other way around.

I wouldn't say that Beaulieu is easily the 2nd most skilled. He may be but I think several guys make a case for it as well. Kristo, Hudon, Collberg, come to mind as well as Gallagher.
