I can totally see this as a cap clearing move...but I liked Begin. Sure his game wasn't perfect, but I liked his nitty gritty-ness, going in, forechecking....Some of his hits were pretty decent and I always got a laugh out of it. Too bad we didn't trade Tom Kosto or something, now him, his all around game...sucks. hahahaha
Did we really need 7 ****ing threads? And people here complain about the Montreal media doing whatever it takes to be 1st to break a story. Borders on hypocrisy to be honest. Mods did a good job at keeping things clean though.
Ideally we would have gotten a pick, but all in all I think things work out for the best. Hopefully Begin gets a chance to prove himself and helps Dallas down the stretch run.

FRISCO, Tex. - The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Doug Janik from a conditioning assignment with the Rockford Ice Hogs in the American Hockey League (AHL). In four games with Rockford, Janik posted two assists and four penalty minutes.
Janik, 28, has appeared in 13 games for Stars this season, earning one assist with two penalty minutes. He was claimed off waivers by Dallas from the Chicago Blackhawks on October 2, 2008.
With Boullion(1.8) on the injury list and Begin(1.0) habs have cleared almost 3 million in cap space. I think we're going for the promise land this year.
Look for another trade, Gainey won't wait for the deadline IMO because we have a game that night and every game is important, I doubt he wants holes on the team on that day when facing buffalo for a potential loss.
