I would take Beaulieu in my top4 before Drewiske without thinking twice. Drewiske was not able to get a spot in the LA defence who have Keaton Ellerby and Alec Martinez.....Drewiske is -5 in his last 5 games and i don't believe this guy can play over 20 minutes a night. Beaulieu is pretty close to be NHL ready from the 10-15 Hamilton and the 2 NHL games we seen.
Let's see how Drewiske handle OV line....
So many things wrong with this, I don't even...
First, both Alec Martinez and Keaton Ellerby are good defenseman. They are also both younger and controllable (RFA), which is a good reason to keep them.
LA has constantly been praised for their defensive depth.
Quick is a very good goalie, but he gets a lot of help from an incredible defensive unit.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Drewiske is a Top-4 defenseman, but Beaulieu is not a Top-4 guy this point. I'd rather take the guy with NHL experience at this point.

This... On your fourth line.
Nothing to see here folks see you at the celebratory PGT.
Bourque will play on the 4th line, not because of depth, but because it's his first game in months. Prust, unfortunately, will move down a line when Bourque's ready to move up.
The person who was supposed to do today's GDT got banned. Someone else going to step up?
That was Lucic's only contribution of the evening. Some benighted lout on the Bruins board said that he would take the loss to put Emelin out of action. Julien would have infinitely preferred Lucic to score.
