Only question mark is his defensive zone coverage.

He seems to have all the tools to be a top 2 defenseman. I hope management don't trade him away like ryan mcdonagh. Give beaulieu time. He reminds me of a young ryan suter. Suter in his early career had the same attribute but ran around and didn't solidify himself until his 3rd season at age 22. Expect the same with beaulieu.

Having beaulieu and subban quarterbacking the powerplay is a blessing for the team.
You can't compare tinordi and beaulieu. Beaulieu is a difference maker and possibly a powerplay specialist. Tinordi on the other hand is a warrior a soldier, he is the type of player that will grind and get you that cup. Beaulieu is like seguin, lots of skills but floats, tinordi is bergeron, plays his heart out.
bang on if his d comes around he will be solid
