Marc Antoine Pouliot vs. Kyle Chipchura: Who would you rather have?
 
Simple question guys. Marc Antoine Pouliot or Kyle Chipchura, who would you rather have?

Arpeggio 08-13-2008 03:59 PM

Probably Chipchura, though I think Pouliot is close to becoming an everyday NHL'er.

CertifiedPublicGuin 08-13-2008 04:00 PM

I'll take Chipchura because I don't know who Marc Andre Pouliot is.

Seriously, probably Chipchura anyway.

Even though I like MAP and think he's getting a little underrated, I'll go with Chipchura. Both will likely be 3rd line centre's with MAP being a little more offensively gifted, but Kyle being much more physical, with better leadership.

Arpeggio 08-13-2008 04:07 PM

Actually, yeah, his name is Marc Antoine Pouliot, but I think he changed it to just "Marc".

Jack Bourdain 08-13-2008 04:08 PM

Marc Andre Pouliot does not exist.

It's Marc-Antoine Pouliot.

Glad you caught up.

FrankMTL 08-13-2008 04:11 PM

Sorry guys...changed everything but the poll option. Don't know how to do that!

Redwingsfan 08-13-2008 07:55 PM

Chipchura..

Luongofan 08-13-2008 08:16 PM

I don't know any of them but I think I have Pouliot's card.

Chipchura

I woudn't trade Chip for Pouliot,call me a hommer but I would never make that deal

Seachd 08-13-2008 10:48 PM

They pretty much seem the same to me - Pouliot with better speed and Chipchura with more character.

Luongo2008* 08-13-2008 10:51 PM

Kyle Chipchura...

nvan97 08-14-2008 12:45 AM

I said Pouliot but on a different note, the hardest I was ever hit in a game was by Chipchura when I was trying out for Bantam AAA. He stopped in the middle of the game and asked me if I was OK, so I hope he does well.

As of now, their scoring are rather comparable, with Chipchura being one year younger. It's very soon though, but I could see him ending better at that aspect.

Rayne* 08-14-2008 12:36 PM

Chipchura, even if my avatar didn't have him in it. :P

It's also my hope Chipchura becomes the type of leader for us down the road that Ethan Moreau is for the Oilers right now, after Saku is gone.

Chipchura

M00se 08-14-2008 12:58 PM

As an Oiler fan I have to go with Chipchura. Though I think they are closer than the poll is suggesting.

zetterberg40 08-14-2008 07:57 PM

I saw both play and i must say, whether it was their good days or bad days, id pick Pouliot. Kyle looked very average.

Well, if everyone thinks Chipchura is better but not by much, then the poll wouldn't be close. :p:

Cogliano13Gagner89 08-14-2008 09:39 PM

Chipchura will never be better than a 3rd liner and a shut down guy.

Pouliot still has some potential to become what everyone though he would be when he was drafted, a top 6 forward.

Next Best Thing* 08-15-2008 03:32 AM

Could Pouliot play effectively on the third line? aka like Chips? No. And Pouliot is only projected to be more offensive than him, doesn't mean he will be. aka bust.

no he doesn't and no he won't be a top 6 forward on any team.

Chipchura was more highly touted, but I never understood it. I spoke to Brad Davis (Oilers scout) at a Lethbridge Hurricanes vs. Prince Albert Raiders game in Lethbridge a few years back and he said the Oilers were looking closely at Chipchura. So I went to the 3 or so games he played against Lethbridge that year, and to a couple of games the year later when he was drafted by Montreal. To be honest, I NEVER saw what people saw in him. He was a quick, but not fast, skater. Didn't have an especially gifted nack for going to the net. Wasn't a great skill player. Played a pretty decent two-way game but was less than noticeable in 5 or so games I saw at the WHL level. Pouliot, I gather, was a lot of the same and benefited from skilled teammates, it seems. At the NHL level, he was noticeable last year as a decent checking liner, but I don't think he'll ever amount to more than that. Same with Chipchura.
