Gilmour will be missed, but for his leadership abilites, not skills. If we're talking about pure skills and play on the ice, I'd take Begin over Gilmour two years ago in a hearbeat. I think Koivu has grown into the leadership role quite well though so the impact isn't that great. Theodore has also developed into a great team leader and isn't scared to call out the team after a bad performance.

Btw, the lines announced this morning have Begin - Juneau - Ward as our shutdown line for Thornton. You can bet that Begin will be all over Thornton all series long. Dowd is going to centre the 4th line between Kovalev and Perrault.
