not both of 'em
Remember that Bob Gainey tried very hard to add a Mats Sundin quality like center to our team. He tied to add a center better than both Koivu and Plekanec to have 3 quality centers. Every great team must have a least 3 centers who are better than than the average.
the habs have 2 center that could be named better than average in Koivu and Plekanec.
Early in their respective careers, both Lapierre and Chipchura are lesser than the average center in the NHL.
And remember that Gainey would have added an elite center to the mix in Sundin. So I can't imagine Gainey going in the playoffs this year without a third quality center. He surely has a plan B. With about 7 M$ under the cap a lot is possible. He could add a denfencemen and he could also find a center via trade.
A think we will find a center someway somehow from now until the trade deadline.
It is ok to have Lapierre or CHipchura in the linup at center but not BOTH of them. Lapierre could be a winger in the future.
