The CBA is complicated, but I am pretty sure his cap hit is 1 M this year. Every source has it that way.

TSN has Begin's salary at 646 K FWIW:

Also Cote is at 495 K.
I just used the other posters numbers. The hit would be 1m+ if it was a new 3 year deal, but as far as I know the cap hit would only be 646k if it's his option year then 1.3 the next two .
