As for your other point, gift wrapping Chipchura in a package for a star, the opportunity may not arise, or by that time Lang may have played himself off the third line.
I not sure he can skate well enough to make himself a good NHLer. Maybe 3 line center at tops...in the mode of a Brian Skrudland. Good size, grit, add the odd goal but not a great skater. Chips should have good trade value as he is young, NHL ready and a former #1 pick. If a trade comes about near the deadline for a star player I am not against packaging him with say Fischer,(maybe more not sure what it will take) for a star. We have depth in d prospects to make such a move.
