Dandenault?

Any chance Dandenault makes the starting roster?

Great skater and nice to have as an emergency defenseman but I can't see him in the top 12 forwards. The fourth line will probable be Laps, BGL and Kosto with Begin as the 13th forward.

Although not Gainey's style, he'll probably have to put him on waivers and hope someone else picks him up.

No way, not unless there are 4-5 injuries.
Gainey wants him out but might not want to humiliate him by sending him to Hamilton.

Dandenault is a joke.

I don't believe Dandenault can play in the NHL anymore.

I understand putting BGL in the starting lineup, given his salary. But why Kostopoulos over Begin? The way I see it, Begin is more effective at evens and on the PK. The only advantage Kosto has is as a pugilist, but now we have Big Georges.

He will be traded before the season starts or sitting in the stands. There is no room in the starting lineup for him. He could be involved in a trade that Gainey has in the Works if Sundin doesn't sign with the Habs. or move after Gaineys moves to clear space for the incoming player(s).

He is not completely useless as some like to say, he has great speed, is physical and battles well in the corners. He is an effective checking forward and emergency defenceman if there is a need late in a game during penalty or injury trouble he can be very useful.

I think he can be moved for a low draft pick. His salary and length are acceptable for someone to take a chance on him.

To be sent to the minors both would have to happen.

The only thing Begin has over TKO is his speed. Kostopoulos is the better of the two in my opinion and he doesn't get injured for half the season nor does he take stupid penalties at the worst possible times.

I was a huge Begin fan before and still love the guy but Kostopoulos is more effective on the 4th line and he's cheaper.

He wont being on the starting lineup, but I'm positive Gainey will keep him around.

He likes to have veteran depth when we're relatively young team, overall.

maybe gainey would want him as an "extra", but from what he said, he doesnt want to be one...

More chance Dandenault is out of montreal then he is in our starting roster.

I could see him as the 14th forward at best, if there are no other moves right now.

and
Kosto > Begin

Better hockey sense.... better hands... only thing is he's a little slower.

Prefer Bégin and TKO over Dandenault by a mile or 2....As far as Bégin or TKO, while TKO seems to be more complete, while slower, I like Bégin's enthusiasm and desire, though it doesn't always work, to change the pace of a game with a couple of thunderous bodychecks. Then I prefer his work on the PK and the fact that he just throw himself all over the ice to block shots. But I really really really hate his stupid penalties.....

Honestly, in the end, it could be one or the other on any given nights. A good duo to have as spares and a good duo to have on a 4th line.

there is nochance whatsoever he starts the year as a roster player, if by chance Sundin signs we already have Chipchura,Lappierre, Laraque, Kostopoulos and Bégin as 4th liners, Dandenualt is simply outmatched now, much like Ryder last year
