I've used Corvo as a comparison for Beaulieu before, but I would be disappointed if that is all he becomes.

My hope is that he becomes an elite second fiddle offensive defensman, and that's all we need him to be. And I accept that he's likely to remain a bit of a liability, but as long as the reward is great than the risk 5 on 5, I can live with that.

Comparison? I'd be thrilled if he can become a Christian Ehrhoff.
