In an ideal world, Lapierre would be playing wing on the same line as Chipchura .. thats how I see the future of these two guys.
They are totally different player 'cause one in reality is a winger and the other one has the REAL instincts of a centerman. Didn't have the greatest of camp in Pierrefonds but is doing much better at the right moment. Kudos to him. Problem is.....he won't and can't stay. If so, who's leaving? Who is traded and who wants what we have?
