I know this probably won't come across well, but do you ever just look at someone and say to yourself, without even knowing them, "that kid is a major ****** bag.."
Well, for me, that's Nathan Beaulieu. I've thought that way since before the 2011 draft.
Glad to have him as a player, though.
Some of the greatest players were far worse people that Beaulieu. At least he once thanked me for congratulating him on that iphone social app.
I don't want to compare him to Chelios but let's not make that mistake again. The impression I get of Beaulieu is he's someone I'd never want to be friends with, but I couldn't give two ****s about that if he produces on the ice. Assaulting people in public is not acceptable and he needs to grow up either way, but for all we know this is BS.

Dumb, or they have a grudge. Jacques is a coach and Nathan is an extremely arrogant top tier prospect, both probably have plenty of enemies on the junior hockey circuit.
Without knowing more I won't pass judgement, but I wouldn't be that shocked considering Beaulieu's personality.
But it would be a big, big mistake to trade the kid because of this. The fact that his father was involved says more about his upbringing than it does about his future. My baseless speculation is that he was drinking with his family, someone insulted him or his father and they overreacted.
Exactly, and this is exactly why we hired guys like Lapointe and Brisebois: helping the development of prospects who need a little more guidance than others. Not everyone has the maturity of the Gally's. Whatever happened/happens with Beaulieu, at least we know that the organization is providing proper support.
lol come on... Everyone knows that Beaulieu has "issues". There's no denying that he's very immature and a bit of a do*che. Not a big deal since he's still young but he definitely has to work on his attitude.
Well we know the altercation did not happen against the Tinordi's.
I don't think daddy Beaulieu would tangle with daddy Tinordi and I don't think Nathan would want to jump in either.
Who cares, this is probably nothing anyways. Kid is still 20 and his on ice play has improved the past year which is what I care about, he can act like a ****** all he wants because his girlfriend is a rocket and he'll mature over the years.
Strathroy Caradoc Police have confirmed the 20-year-old hockey superstar is facing the same set of charges as his dad Jacques Beaulieu -- head coach of the Sarnia Sting -- in connection with the same incident.
I wasn't aware we had a Superstar in our system!
We don't even know the details,. You watch, they'll press their own charges and it'll turn into nothing. If they weren't well known, no one outside of the party would have heard of it. Besides, what 20 yr old kid hasn't gone to parties and gotten into some kind of altercation?
