If he physically can't, it's different, but he can still play a limited role, though it's tough for a proud guy to understand that.
No I agree...It's a tough decision for anyone to make, let alone a young guy who loves hockey as much as he does. I just worry about his body. He's hurt all the time and it doesn't stop him. Retirement might suck for him, but so does not being able to play with your kids. He's going to have back problems for the rest of his life as it is...It'll only get worse.

Begin brings energy, Dandy hardly. Begin blocks shots, Dandy hardly. Begin can fight, Dandy wouldn't even think of it. What a slap in the face this is to Begin! No he's not better than Kosto or Lapierre and no he's not as valuable as BGL, but come on, Dandy?
I prefer him to Dandy as well, but Dandenault hasn’t been horrible this year and most (or all?) of our wins came with Dandy in the lineup.

Yours in Christ,
