mediocre 3rd or 4th line... wow how can you say that at this point of his development!
A winning team is not a team with 12 offensive fowards... you'll always need a shut down line to prevent dammages made by guys like ovy, crosby or Kovalchuk.... And Chip could very well be the centerpiece of that line for many years to come...
I don't believe in this defensive system... I don't want a defensive center as our 3rd line. 4th line okay, but not on the 3rd. I want a team that can roll 3 offensive lines and sorry, but Chipchura doesn't fill that description to be this 3rd line center... The guy IS NOTHING SPECIAL !! Being a good leader and can play defense doesn't make you a 1st rounder !!
Also, the fact that he was a 1st rounder makes me grudge even more, because I just can't support this kind of player going in the fist round. If only he was a kind of pest, play an aggressive physical style and hit like crazy or something, but he is nothing like that. If he was a 2nd or 3rd rounder it would have been alright... the fact that there was much better player available makes me frustrates everytime I hear his name.
Kyle Chipchura = Below average risk, Low Potential =/ 1st rounder in my opinion.
And stop with the "Ohh he is a surefire NHL and future captain" thing, because he hasn't proved anything yet...
