Steve Begin Invited To Canucks Training Camp

"I know it's my last chance, and I need to make the most of it, I really like the way the team is coached - and the system. It's a good fit for me."

That is what Begin told Renaud Lavoie from RDS yesterday (yes I know, old news). The Canucks continue their wise collecting of NHL veterans / fringe players to see if they stick. Why not? It's camp. It doesn't count against the salary cap unless he impresses enough that he is signed to a contract. The 33 year-old center has only played in 488 NHL games since the 1997-98 season (52 goals and 100 points, plus 1 goal and 5 points in 36 playoff games.) Begin was drafted by the Flames 40th overall in 1996. He has played for 5 NHL teams (Flames, Canadiens, Stars, Bruins and the Predators). Wow he didn't ever play for the Panthers?! He only played 2 games for Nashville last season and spent most of his time with the Predators' affiliate Milwaukee Admirals.

The bruising Begin was most loved by

the Canadiens' fans I am reading. Not only is he a native of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, he also played his best hockey as a Hab. In 266 games played with Montreal, Begin scored 35 goals and 66 points. But a lot of his popularity no doubt came from the following:

Another potential 4th liner to fight for an NHL spot with the Canucks. Best of luck, Steve-o.
