Nate Beaulieu 2.0 ?  At 24 he's getting to the point where you can almost call him a bust but as a defensman, he probably has 1 or 2 more years to turn that around. 

Its interesting that MB signed him & that CJ used to coach him. Makes you think CJ believes there's still more he can give.  

I'd say its highly unlikely he will make a big impact on this roster, but you never know.  On paper (having never seen JJ play) he's probably the 2nd most mobile defensman we have right now.

In 3 yrs with the Bruins he played 65 games .

If CJ didn't see enough of him in 3 yrs to give him more ice time , not sure what's  changed now

Without looking back at those years. He may have had a solid core in front of him. C.J. is a coach that does like veterans first.

Well he's young(ish) by defense standards, but the point is, CJ coached him for several years there... i am assuming MB would have consulted with CJ prior to signing him, so you have to wonder whether CJ thinks there's potential there or not.

Mind you, its MB so for all we know he just signed him & didnt even ask CJ.

we have better options in Laval.

He's such an intriguing player though. He's maybe our best skater on the blueline (ugg. what does that say) and seems to have the right skills but just cannot get it all together/get his head straight.   Frustrating.  At least we didnt Trade Seguin to get him!

Would he have to clear waivers to assign him to Laval?
