I think that between Tinordi , Beaulieu and Pateryn, Beaulieu had the best first game.

He's got something special that I didn't see from the other 2.

He played with a lot of poise last night. Good game for him.

Maybe wrong word used. His intensity level wasn't always up to par. Saw him against the Piques in the finals for the whole series and was not impressed with his fighting level one on one.

One thing is for sure though: (and I'm NOT comparing the two) he has the offensive flair of a Karlsson-type pkayer. In neutral zone, he made some dynamic plays (one on the boards for example) that tells me he's got it.

And his fake shot and pass he made is not something you generally see from a 20 year old first gamer.

I was impressed with his ability to move the puck and his skating really stood out...needs to add some weight and get stronger though

Hopefully this wasn't a showcase game for him in an eventual trade, having defensman who can retrieve pucks and start the rush like he can are rare.

All that I know is that Habs fans should feel very good knowing we have Beaulieu and Tinordi as capable NHLers right now and possible plus players in the future.

Back that knowledge up with the thought a few of Ellis, Pateryn, Dietz, Bennett, Nygren, Thrower and Didier possibly providing depth on the back end.

Feels good man!

I don't think so, with the injuries he's giving the prospects a chance to get their feet wet and see where they are in their development.

I am very impressed with all three of them. Even Pateryn showed that he could play in this league. More seasoning in the AHL will help him. But we have three NHLer to be with these three defencemanm which gives us awesome depth at D. Just to thin that we have Dietz, Thrower, Bennett, Ellis are moving along is just amazing. Kudos to Trevor Timmins.

The three Tinordi, Beaulieu and Pateryn played well. They are different types of defensemen. Tinordi is a big tough dman who surprise me by being very mobile for his size. He reminds me of Derian Hatcher. Beaulieu on the other hand is speed and very smart moving the puck. He's got size too and can play the powerplay. Beaulieu reminds me of Mathieu Schnider when he first broke into the league. Pateryn on the other hand skates very well and smart moving the puck. His shooting and offensive ability are limited. Pateryn is a positional player and you rarely see him out of position. He's a better skating Josh Gorges in my mind.

Derian Hatcher mobile? Hum! no...

Beaulieu reminded me of Patrice Brisebois. Which is not a bad thing at all.

Let's hope the fans don't turn against him.

Pateryn's skating is no way close to Gorges.

They will if we make the same mistakes we did with Brisebois and our 1990s D-corp. We'd have to lose/trade Subban, Markov, Tinordi and even Diaz then make Beaulieu our no1. Brisebois would have been loved if we kept Desjardins, Schneider and even Chelios.

He looked really good. So far him, Tinordi and Pateryn have no looked out of place at all. Good things in the next couple of years

True, but I also think Beaulieu is a very different defenseman from Tinordi and Pateryn. The latter two both play more of a steady, quiet game where they don't really get much notice (Pateryn more than Tinordi because JT has some offensive instincts to his game, though not too much).

Nate's always been more of a PMD.

He has the most "flashy" skills of the three. Tinordi may still have a bigger NHL impact down the line.

Poor guy! The Bell must feel extremely intimidating for a first NHL game rookie, now this must be 10 times worse
