Nathan Beaulieu would like to stay with the Canadiens and believes that will be the case, but at this point it wouldn't be surprising if he wasn't back with the team next year.
"I still believe in myself and know I can be a big part of this team. It's tough to put a fingerprint on it right now, but I know I feel like I'm still a big part of this team on the back end," he said. "I feel like the organization still thinks that from talking to them. This is another big summer for me and get ready to come back to work again." Beaulieu's roster spot may be in jeopardy because of prospect Mikhail Sergachev, so a trade or a position in the expansion draft are possibilities. Apr 26 - 10:53 AM

Beaulieu found himself outside of the top six during Montreal's morning skate at MSG on Saturday. He's had his share of struggles in the opening round of the playoffs, and he didn't really look good on Jesper Fast's shorthanded goal in Thursday's loss in Game 5. Brandon Davidson will take his spot in the lineup.
