Stewart at his best is worth that, sure, but his inconsistency vs. Beaulieu's potential is, at this stage, not worth it imo

exactly... and beaulieu is/should be considered a big asset.
In my viewings, Beaulieu hasn't been physically imposing, at all. He's tall and can fight, but in actual game play I haven't seen him muscling opponents off the puck.
