That's perfectly fine though, especially with Subban in the fold.

The upside for Beaulieu is virtually unlimited. He may not hit it, I understand that, but based on his skating and vision and height/frame, he is a potential Larry Robinson.

Robinson too was skinny and not strong on his skates and needing of defensive positioning skills when he was taken in the SECOND ROUND of the 1971 draft, but he hit his potential.

If Beaulieu falls SHORT of his potential, he may still be a 30-40 pts guy with limited defensive value, but that is definitely not the best he could turn out to be.
