Never know...he's a gamer (hits, fights and sticks up for teammates), he's french, he kills penalties, good on the draw. He's a guy who could be popular with AV. I think he could earn a spot on the 4th line, but I think its a long shot.
Could be valuable to have him in Chicago; never hurts to have a guy with almost 500 NHL games on his resume available in case of injury, but I don't see him supplanting anyone as a regular on the team.
there could be more try-out invites to come according to mr. gilman on the radio a few days ago.
He [Begin] is the third veteran invitee so far – and based on the big hint Laurence Gillman dropped earlier this week – he may not be the last. Professional Try Out (or PTO) deals don’t count against the teams fifty contract limit.
heres some list of guys to consider.
mike grier, cory stillman, sergei samsonav, chris clark.
