Don't the Flames already have 12 forwards on one way contracts?
I guess if he settled for a 2 way contract it might work and Abbotsford is a pretty nice place to play AHL (except for the travel) but would a 34 year old Begin want to do that?
He wasn't healthy when he played for Milwaukee and when he had a tryout with Vancouver. IIRC, he had severe back problems

He trained like a workhorse this summer and he recently told RDS that he is in an amazing shape. He also said that he is willing to play in the AHL if it means that he can win a spot later in the season.

Honestly, I believe that he can make it. He'll probably have to start the season in the AHL but if someone has the heart to do it, it's clearly Begin.

Begin is taking his comeback much more seriously than Laraque.

Talking about TVA Sports, how come Renaud Lavoie from RDS got the scoop before them?
