Begin, in his entire career, has never shown hints of being an "elite checkling line player." What he has shown is that he can be a valuable 4th line guy. A useful pickup and a player who could help many of the teams in the NHL? certainly. Elite? Probably not.

Not only did Buffalo fail to protect him, but a bunch of teams failed to show any interest in acquiring him. Begin doesn't have much, if any, trade value.
You haven't seen him play this year, obviously. He's been awesome. Considering his low trade value and his high value to the Habs, I would think he is untradeable anyway. I don't know why anyone would bring his name up.
