It seems I'm alone in my opinion but Beaulieu's 2-game tryout confirmed he is really not ready for prime time. He was overwhelmed in the defensive zone repeatedly, attacking forwards tossed him aside with ease. The kid is only 19 and his offensive and skating skills are obvious but at this point he is a far cry from being an NHL defenceman.

It is true that Beaulieu was less sheltered by Therrien. Unlike Patteryn and Tinordi, Beaulieu was thrown out there against some pretty stiff oppostion. Nonetheless, the other two rookies were far less conspicuous in their debuts, a good thing.
