And if he's not recalled all year and doesn't show improvement, he will start to think that a breath of fresh air is needed.

The idea here is development. Even if they don't mind waiting for Beaulieu for the next 2 or 3 years, if they don't see any development from him this year..he's done. He doesn't have to be fully developed this year. He has to show improvement.
Spot on. I'm not sold on Beaulieu. His potential is through the roof. He has so many intangibles and such fine raw tools. It's a shame he's such a meathead.
