    He was a very important part of the penalty killing.  While he doesn't score too many times, he does a great job preventing the other side from scoring.  If they can get him for around the same money, I would be happy if he returned.

    Nay, he is not the same pest when with the Canadiens, probably a bi-product of the Julien System.

    Marchand can def fill his spot on PK, or let's see what Seguin has got. I prefer having your best players on the PK they are your best players. Pail works because he is possibly the best skater in the league, too bad he can't transfer that to scoring as well.

    Pail I keep though.

    I'd rather take the 800K or so that would be used on him and get Taylor Pyatt...a 12-15 goal scorer compared to a 5-6 goal scorer

    What is the difference between Paille and Begin?  Paille might be a fast skater, but he couldn't put the puck in the ocean, so that really doesn't matter.

    I don't know if Marchand can do what Begin does killing penalies.  Marchand is an AHLer so far, so it's impossible to know.

    The Paille/Begin combo works extremely well.  When the B's are not killing penalties well, it's painful to watch.  Nothing was worse than Byron Bitz on the 5-4.

    No on Begin and no on Paille!  They both had their chance this year and did not show up.  The 3rd and 4th line had a ton of ice. Paille was paid about 1.3 mill and not sure on Begin.  Begin had moments of excellence as did Paille particularly in the beginning of the year. When it mattered they both disappeared.  I am all about keeping character guys, but these 2 are not it...

    For those who want to get rid of Begin (or Paille):

    Who is the replacement?  Before you start listing guys in Providence, remember that the PK is pretty important.

    I say no.  I'm concerned about cap management.  And just like Thornton, I have to believe that getting an upgrade with these 4th line guys can't be that hard to do.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....not enough of what the B's need...we can do better. Paille should go too...if he is kept, he js a 4th liner and PK guy...no finish at all.

    To easily replaced.  Every team has their version of Begin, and they can be found easily.  If we didn't re-sign Thornton, I would've liked a Marchand - Colborne - Caron 4th line.  Give them 8 mins a game to get used to the flow of being a full time nhl'er and to gel and get used to playing with each other.

    Nay.
    Sobotka is your 4th line center/pest.

    NO! while the 4th line was good early in the year they fell into a roll 4 lines & thought they could be the 2nd coming of the 1st line....the 4th line should be used sparingly hopefully bringing energy to the building & the other team honest on which the begin-thornton pairing did nothing in the playoffs for energy nor honesty.....as for paille at least his speed & drive keeps the others teams defensemen honest....the b,s need a left wing energy guy that will go out & take the body,hit anything in a opposite uniform

    Please dont sign Begin. I would rather have PJ Axelson back if we sign another player. I say instead of signing Begin use one of our young players in the 4th line playing those 5 to 10 minutes for the season so he gets to learn the speed and the game at the NHL level.

    So NOOOOO

    Who is killing your penalties?  Paille on one side, who is on the other?  Would you put a rookie out there?

    Re: Sign Begin? Yea or Nay?

       There are a lot of unknowns about LW this coming year...
    1. Do the bruins draft TAYLOR HALL?
    2. What is the status of MARCO STURM?
    3. Does WHEELER play LW or RW if he is re-signed?
    4. PAILLE made 1.33M last year, and must be offered a raise in order to retain his rights. Is he worth that on the 4th line? I don't think so, so if he comes back, it will be for the 3rd line.
       That leaves the 4th line spot for BEGIN a possibility. I would rather have a young prospect in there. I just don't think the bruins have anyone ready in the system.
