Go back and watch some game tape of when Beaulieu was paired with Subban. The ability of both players to retrieve the puck and exit the zone with ease, EVEN without proper winger support was something to behold.

The smart move is to play him with Subban from what I've seen. They compliment each other with puck skills, skating ability and poise with the puck. Not to mention people tend to forget that Beaulieu is a big kid that uses his body well to control the puck in traffic.

Beaulieu-Subban
Markov-Emelin
Tinordi-Weaver

Bouilon - send him to Narnia for all I care, he shouldn't be playing he's a liability and is making our Norris winner look like Komisarek.

Also when Gorges comes back I'd put him with Weaver and have them play top PK minutes and limited ES minutes, but I'm a crazy armchair coach if you compare to how Therrien thinks the game.
