So what the habs just drafted is the white version of PK Subban.
Beaulieu skates GREAT and I mean GREAT, A bit bigger then PK at 6.3..
he slide from #11 right to the Habs lap. I think the Habs were to take McNeil but when Beaulieu was still on the board you just had to grab Beaulieu.
I'm ecstatic about this pick. He's such a good talent. He's a good skater and even though he's not the best defensively, he can learn that just like PK did. He's not small either, so if he can learn to use his size even a bit, even better.
ILl mention this because i know youll all love love this, My brother was a former football player at one of the best football schools in the country (citadel High in Halifax). Anyway his friend Elliot plays for St. FX and is good friends with Nathen says he is a beast and will **** the NHL up, he says he makes him look like a ***** and he is 6'3 220, IM EXCITED
Hard not to love the pick...Big can skate and awesome offensive skills...truly a home run pick, but not a lot of downside, getting a top 10 calibre guy at #17 sort of like Fowler and Gormley last year. Gotta love the skill and depth of young talent on defense.
