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?
8-0-1 with Dandy in the lineup.... please do not question his contribution this team
Seriously though begin is not the player he was 3 or 4 years ago, his body is broken down.... its sad to say, but Dandenault is a better PKer right now. He's faster, and is a better PKer.

I don't understand why Gainey keeps all those tweeners with fat contracts around. Dandenault 1.75, Laraque 1.5, Kostopoulos 1.0, Begin 1.0 .... a 4th liner shouldnt make more than 750K MAX, and now our 4th line combined every night is making around $4M. What a joke.
We're wasting money, those guys are nothing special. Well, I mean, Laraque is the best goon in the league and Kostopoulos can actually play... but Begin, Dandenault and even Lapierre to a lesser extent can easily be replaced by some of our AHLers.
so we put him on re-entry waivers.... pay him 500K out of his 1million contract... and then we call up stewart to replace him and pay him his NHL salary which is 491,997... or D'ago whose NHL salary is 500,000 or best one yet Chipchura who gets 850,000....
how does this save us money??
