I think Bustlieu is a better nickname, suits him well.

Don't forget Thrower and Dietz playing in Saskatoon... Well at the Memorial cup anyway.

Can't Believe my hometown Blades got swept AGAIN by the Medicine Hat Tigers for the second straight year... They were the #2 seed and the Tigers were #7

Beaulieu will feel stretched to be playing at the NHL level and he'll do his best to keep up with his teammates.

Lol haters gonna hate.

This kid is the real deal. Must have seen him play at least 120 games while in junior. Raw skill, very coachable. Not surprised at all to hear his defensive game has been improved in Hamilton.

Not that I'm complaining, but if one is only "classy" to one's CURRENT friends, and callous toward those who one chose to be friends with earlier, but for some reason are no longer interested in, that is not really showing class, just cunning.

This is particularly true of how Kaberle is being treated. He gave the Habs EXACTLY what he had in the tank, and he is an NHL-calibre player being frozen out of a chance to continue playing.

Yes it heartless, ruthless, and, as far as I can see, effective. They've decided Kaberle is detrimental to the team, and the team comes first. They were ready to do it with Gomez too.

Im with you on this one...beaulieu will pass Tinordi...80% of the people love Tinordi only because of his size... has any one here seen this Tinordi skate? i hope he improves his skating because at this time he is NOT ready for the big leagues..send him back and keep him there...

This isn't a round of golf, this is the business of hockey. If you're not part of the ones' that can help the team the most, then you won't be playing. If no one is willing to take the guy off our hands, it's only fair, according to what's in the best interest of the team, that he sit out.

The Kaberle situation is neither classy or classless.

Not the same. Gomez did not give them what was expected of him, Kaberle did.

But that is not even my main point.

My main point is that Bergevin is doing what is good for the team, in his eyes, and that is all. It may be fun for the fans, but it is going overboard to call his policies "classy".

This is obviously a business, and in this case "classiness" is not really a factor in it, positively or negatively.

I agree. Unlike some other fans here, I don't believe we have to do the Halak versus Price thing all over again.

I think BOTH Beaulieu and Tinordi will be big players for us for years. Either one has the potential of being Norris-trophy candidates, one as a future Brian Campbell and the other as a future Rod Langway.

OR they could just be good players.

It is indeed going to be fun watching to find out.

I feel like this is 1973 again, and Lafleur, Robinson, Wilson and Gainey were the up and comers on a team with decent vets already.

We didn't know how it would turn out (three out of four hit their potential!!) but it was fun watching.

Of course it's a business and as such, image is important so yes, class is a factor. But we are straying away from the threads' topic which is Beaulieu.
Maybe another thread should be created for this subject...

Sadly Tinordi will never win a Norris. The NHL is based around points over anything.
(Just look at last year or how Weber never won a Norris and Chara who won only one..)
Doesnt mean he can't be a damn good important piece on this team.

They should create a trophy for top scoring D- The Bobby Orr Trophy.

They already have one. It's basically the Norris now.

Definitely got the impression that some vets told him to grow the **** up this year. Changed his twitter, stopped posting as much dumb ****. Seems to have matured a ton on the ice as well. I actually was pretty lukewarm on Bolier before this year. Was really tough to get a read on how important he was for such a beast club in St- John. He's had a really impressive learning curve so far, though, and I really wasn't expecting him to get this good this quick. Not subbanian, but still very fast.

Our blue line is definitely going to be in the top 3 in the league when Nathan becomes an NHLer.

If someone has a shot at it for us, outside of P.K., who will win it this year, it's Brolieu.
He has the talent to be a 50-60 first pairing Dman.

Keep in mind that what you want from a Dman at first is good physical attributes(Check) and good offensive instinct(Chaching.). Defensive instinct can be taught.
