I like Begin and think he was a decent pickup for the Habs. But, it is urnrealistic to suggest that he could be the principal in a deal for Scatchard. I think the Papineau for Zednik deal proposed above was an example on same scale of one-sidedness.
I think we're lowballing each Begin is not equal value for Scatchard, but he is a heart and soul player. How the Sabres didn't protect this guy is beyond me. Begin has the potential to be an elite checking line player.

If you think Scatchard's upside is as a 30-goal, physical center, then it's underpaying. I happen to think Scatchard has no offensive He is an elite checker already tho.
