But that's solely if Beaulieu and Nygren shows progression throughout the year.....Might be Beaulieu last chance to shine this year.
Beaulieu and Leblanc....same battle. Same timeframe. This year is THE year to make a statement.
What do you mean by "same timeframe"? Those 2 guys aren't on the same time frame at all. Beaulieu has 2 years on his ELC while Leblanc needs to be re-signed next summer. That's the only measure of time that matters for those 2 guys.
As for the thread topic, I really love Tinordi's game so far this pre-season. Improved skating, positioning and puck skills. He's assertive and won't back down if you what to challenge him. In fact, Gleason (who's no slouch in the fisticuffs department, far from it) found out that you might not want to challenge him every time he throws a big, clean hit.
