I agree, transition game is so huge. Beaulieu helps with that. We're a dangerous team when our forwards force a turnover, D turns it around and we're coming back the other way in numbers. We have lots of dangerous rush forwards, especially on our first line.

All Cube can do is get to the red and dump it and Tinordi is still too mistake prone when he goes up ice.

The nice thing about our d is we have a bunch of guys that can rotate in depending on the schedule, opponent, injury, suspension, etc. Weaver, Tinordi, Boullion, Beaulieu, Murray sharing the bottom pair gives me great comfort.

The only problem I have is if we have a top 4 d drop out we have no one that can step in without a dropoff in our d core. Basically, we need 5 top 4 d men to have true depth.
