Last December: Chipchura was called, by many, our future 2nd line center. It was believed, by and large, that he would take over 3rd line center duties after Smolinski left.

Last January: Chipchura may not be as good as we once thought. He's been inconsistent, and for a rookie, that is unheard of. This was most worrisome.

This past summer: He didn't get recalled after being sent down. Things are quiet...too quiet.

Training camp: Just plain lousy. Well that settles it! We've seen enough. It's pretty clear after 2 scrimmages he doesn't have what it takes to be an NHL player.
doesn't that go for almost any rookie with the Habs? At first Lats was the next coming of Jesus, then he's just ok, then he's horrible and should be in the AHL.

Even Markov had his share of detractors at first..
