What are the chances...

that Begin is still a Hab after this season??

I want to get my Habs jersey crested and Begin is the guy I want to get.

Personally I think he's awesome and there's no way in hell the Habs won't keep him, but what does management think?

Also, if there is a season, could he be left unprotected in the waiver draft or is he safe?

I didn't even think about the possibility of Bégin not coming back.
Why?
Is his contract due?
He would probably be protected while leaving juneau dackell and others unprotected

I think he's safe... there are lots of other guys we don't need to protect up front as much. I guess it comes down to wriggly little details on the rules, but I have us as needing to protect Hossa and Hainsey too?

If so, 18 skaters:
Koivu, Zednik, Ryder, Ribeiro, Bulis, Ward
Brisebois, Markov, Rivet, Souray
(that's 10 "essentials")

+ Begin, Hossa, Hainsey, (13)

+ ??? still 5 more slots to fill...
Dagenais, Perreault, Sundstrom, Dackell, Juneau, Quintal, Boullion, Dowd, Langdon... some are UFA anyway...

Basically, I would say no fears about Begin.

Begin will be back. He loves playing here, we love him, and management loves him.

I guarantee he'll be here next season (if there is a season). And you can take that to the bank
