    No way we would have gotten a 3rd round pick today for Beaulieu.

    Yeah but he would probably be a good piece to have on LD though ;).

    Beaulieu would likely be our best LD. Not saying much but at least he can skate and provide some physical presence in our own end.

    I think they traded Beaulieu away cause they were tired of him not reaching his potential. And the expansion draft issues. And that Bergevin loved Benn.

    At least we could get a 3rd for Benn at the trade deadline.

    Kulak for Taormina and Valiev looks like a good trade now.

    Doubt Benn gets a 3rd at the deadline. But I do agree about the Kulak trade. He looks decent at this stage.

    I'd take my chances with Reilly over Beaulieu.

    And the just is still out on Kulak. A d for the future I like Mete.

    Reilly seems to have better skating and vision but where he struggles is where Beaulieu is better. Don't underestimate Beaulieu's toughness in his own end. Yeah, he's not perfect but he is a big mobile body that doesn't get pushed around in his own end. Beaulieu's vision and skating is not terrible either.

    Beaulieu is outproducing Reilly as well this year. It's close but the comparisons offensively are similar. Reilly has also gotten more PP opportunity vs Beaulieu as well.

    Morrow was good enough to score the occasional goal. If Morrow fetched a 4th, it means Benn will fetch a 5th

    Benn plays 18min average since the beginning of the year and he's better defensively than Morrow. McQuaid was traded for a 4th, who's better Benn or McQuaid ?

    His off ice behaviour did not help him either.

    Morrow scores at a similar pace to Benn and that was with getting some PP time. Teams always want defensive depth at the deadline, I won't be surprised if someone gives up a late 3rd for Benn given he actually can play decent if he's on a 3rd pair for 16-17 minutes a game.

    Benn did have a good season for us when we acquired him. But Beaulieu was the better D man IMO. Better vision, better skating, and just as physical... and younger

    I don't think he was very bad. He just gets thrown under the bus cause it's Montreal and he was a 1st round pick. There is a frustration factor and he didn't measure up to his potential and skills.

    He's actually not having a bad year with the Sabres this year on the bottom pairing. 5 pts in his last 10 games and he gets pretty much zero PP time.

    There's a fine line between mediocre and mediocrer.

    Still... I rather have Beaulieu vs Benn. I think Beaulieu matures in his mid to late 20's. He's a better skater than Benn, has better vision, skates better, and is younger.

    Sure. I'll buy that. It's just that neither one of them is going to make much of a difference. If there is going to be a mistake made, it's hard to think of one with more insignificant consequences.

    I think Beaulieu still has top 4D potential if he matures and has shown he can this season so far. Benn is who he is at this stage. If you ask me who I had to force into a top 4D role with Petry, I pick Beaulieu

    Kulak / Weber
    Beaulieu / Petry
    Reilly / Juulsen

    Looks much better with Beaulieu vs Benn IMO. I value Beaulieu's skating, vision, size, and potential. He's 26 and I think there is value from him from age 26-30. I expect maturity
