Begin or Stewart?

Assuming Saku Koivu is back this week and replaces Kyle Chipchura as one of the Habs' four centremen, whom would you rather see play LW with Koivu and Matt d'Agostini:

Steve Begin, Gregory Stewart or Kyle Chipchura?

I don't think it will be any of those three.

OK, but assume for the purpose that no one else (examples Higgins or Tanguay) is back from injury and that Carbo doesn't want to break up the other lines seeing as we are 11-2-1 in the last 14 games.

I go with Begin for his penalty killing capabilities.

If anything, they'll go down (to the dogs) in that order:
Chip
Stewart
D'ag
That's it..


Then IF everybody's healty, Begin will sit.. But D'ags might sit 1st.. Although, Carb is verry special..

Koivu should not be stuck with any of those guys. D'Agostini is fine, but give him another scoring threat.

Higgins - Koivu - Tanguay.

The rest are fillers until these three are healthy again.

Down the road, Latendresse-Lapierre-Kosto is our fourth line, maybe one of the best fourth line in the league.

Begin.

Stewart can still learn in Hamilton .
The only way to get ride of Begin would be to Waive him .. But why Waive him?
He work so hard each night and i'm pretty sure he's a really great team guy.

Stewart can wait a little bit longer.It's not like we will lose him anytime soon , unlike Begin who's getting older.

If they just Waive Begin that would suck so much for him . He deserve more respect.It's not like he cost a fortune.

It's like your boss giving you a Watch after 35 years of hardwork.

If you're talking about right now, it's a toss up. But if you're referring to the playoffs, it's Begin by a mile! We have a lot of youth, Begin is what we need at that point.
