Begin doesn't belong in any team's Top 6. Considering you signed him for a decent amount I would of looked to move Filpulla into your Top 6 as he's clearly ready, and look to put Begin/FA Center into the bottom 6 for the 1-1.5M.
TSN - The Vancouver Canucks have aquired center Samuel Pahlsson from the Washington Capitals in return for Andrew Alberts, Jeremy Price, and Vancouver's 2011 3rd round pick.
"We know we might have overpaid, but this basically sets our roster exactly how we'd like it for the next season. We now have 4 very good rolling forward lines, 3 solid defense pairings, and a top goalie."

Ranger’s Draft Results:
I didn't get around to shaping my defense because I spent so much time undoing the garabge that Sather put together, but what are your thoughts??
Frolov and Gaborik will be a good combo, but I don't know how I feel about the rest. Christenson doesn't belong in the NHL, and your 3rd line with him, Grach and Drury just seems too mashed together. That and any defense with Greg Zanon as the #2 is in trouble.
Very solid offense - one of the best in the league. Defense and goaltending are very big question marks.
I guess with the off seasons of Regehr and Bouwmeester you could say it's a question mark, but if they return to form we have four Top 4 dmen, Foster is having an amazing year putting up 40 points while missing 10 games, and Schultz is a minute munching type of guy.
Goaltending I'll give you.
It might be a Nashville type situation with goaltending in terms of Nittymaki, where once someone is given the #1 they seem to struggle, but I think Cory Schneider could take over the #1 by the end of the season and do quite well.
