Which Call up has been your favorite?

I know its a little early to Judge Beaulieu, but just by seeing his skating and presence on the ice, (hitting nash) or his long ice breakout passes, he is currently my prefered call up to replace Diaz for the rest of the season.

Yannik Weber - 2gp - 0 points - -1 - 0shots - 2pim - 3 hits 2bks

Greg Pateryn - 3gp - 0points - +/-0 - 0shots - 0pim - 2hits - 1bks

Jared Tinordi - 6gp - 1assist - +2 - 5shots - 2pim - 3hits - 3bks

Nathan Beaulieu - 1gp - 0points - +/- 0 - 1shot - 0pim - 1hit - 1bks

All I know is that we have some promising youngsters..

Beauliea looks to be the one with the most offensive upside, although tinordi didn't look to bad offensively..


All around tinordi looked most NHL ready, although not ready yet..

Beaulieau was better positionally, but only by a hair. He looked like he has MONSTER potential.. I thought of letang when I saw him skate the blueline.. Not very similar.. but it was a thought..

It's clear Beaulieu has the most potential, I'm not ready to proclaim him the best yet though. Thought Tinordi did well in his call up too.

I think Beaulieu is going to be a pretty special player though.

yeah I'm excited to see him play as well! he will probably get called up sometime after the deadline.

I did love Tinordi's play as well but it was very different from Beaulieu, more of a shutdown type guy. Which we will deffinatly need once the likes of Bouillion will be done.

Tinordi's my favourite because him and Bouillon on the ice together is hilarious.

Beaulieu did show flashes of what we have all expected from him. He did also make a few mistakes, but first game, so I'll let it pass. So I'll say he had an overall good first game with some legitimate scoring chances and good offensive plays.

Personally I thought Tinordi was very good and Pateryn was pretty bad. We'll see how Nathan plays going forward. I would worry about him making a gaffe in the POs, but if he can make up for it with his PP presence (I felt like when he was on, everyone was trying to get him to touch the puck at least once to see what he could do), might be worth it. It wouldn't be a hard decision if Tinordi wasn't as solid as he was. Not like he can't skate or shoot.


BTW, anyone catch CBC's totally pathetic lack of professionalism when Cassie Campbell (before I switched to RDS) announced that Nathan Boullion was going to be playing his first NHL game?

Beaulieu is the smoothest skater out of the 3. That said, I don't think we can compare the 3. Beaulieu is easily the most offensive of the 3 and the one with the most offensive vision. But at the same time, he missed a couple of defensive assignments (but it was his first NHL game and may have been nervous).

Pateryn was a pure stay-at-home Dman. The potential is there...

Tinordi was slightly more offensive and more of a puck mover. But I would still label him as a stay at home type.

Beaulieu just looked like a poor man's Subban out there. Great skater, great puck mover and always looking to jump into the rush. Like i said, it may have been because it's his first game....I really want to see how he plays once he gets over the nervousness.

Either way my friends, our defense is set for years to come with Subban, Pateryn, Beaulieu, Tinordi and Ellis.

If all those players continue to develop we could even have too much defensive depth as a good problem to have.

Weber isn't really a call-up. He hasn't played in Hamilton since 2011.

Anyhow I really liked what I saw from Beaulieu but the sample size is too small to pick him over Tinordi, who really impressed me. I didn't think he was that close to being NHL ready (he is, in fact, NHL ready!)

He was with the Habs when the season started tho. Not really a call up (by my definition anyways, I mean he made the team out of camp he only played with Hamilton during the lockout).

Just watched Nathan's post-game comments. I'm going with Tinordi in the tie break until Beaulieu shaves that semi-hitler stash/tiny rodent living under his nose.

Tinordi looked the most NHL ready IMO. Beaulieu needs more time in the AHL but showed some nice flashes. I didn't really notice Pateryn (for better or worse).

Moving Diaz? I know he has a ****** injury but his play this year was good. I don't know if it would be good to have two rookies on D. But I really like both of them. Both high end in different aspects.

He will be the best offensively of them all, no doubt. Hopefully he will continue to improve his defence as well, like Subban did.

The main concern in using him right now is he has not gotten strong enough yet to be difficult to knock down. That will come, and that is when he will become an NHL regular, followed in a short time by NHL star.

I love this little 6th D "try-out" they've got going on right now. It gives all the rookies a taste of the big leagues and, in turn, more motivation to succeed. Now they can walk away being like "Okay, I played in the NHL... what do I need to stay there? To be successful there? etc" and get them to strive to be better. I couldn't watch the game tonight due to work, but I heard some pretty good things about Nate. He's definitely the one I'm most excited about seeing, although Tinordi didn't look out of place by any means.

Pateryn surprised me, when we got him I honestly thought he would be the kind of guy that would eventually dissapear without suiting up for us, but he made it to the show, good for him. I feel he'll be a good 6th D or a good extra body, kind of guy that will never hurt you and will fill a jersey quite nicely without ever wowing you with anything.

Tinordi impressed me, his offensive game is way ahead of where I thought it would be, and he was reliable defensively, plus he's got the size aspect that plays in his favor. He was my favourite of the three.

I have to admit, I have a negative preconceived opinion of Nathan Beaulieu. I ALSO thought Chris Dyment was a great draft pick back in the day. You know what they say about opinions... he was skilled out there, nice flashes, loved that beautiful shot in the first.. I thought he looked light, needs to add some weight. I can see the potential.
