That's believable.

It's also believable that we just move Kostopolous to the left wing and make our fourth line:

Begin/Kostopolous - Chipchura/Lapierre - Dandenault/Laraque

Begin is bound to get hurt like usual, Chip and Lappy can split time on center as you said, and once we finally drop Dandy, Lap can split time with Laraque (though I think Laraque will get 60+ games).

Truth is, its time for Kostopolous and Dandenault to go, but having Tom's energy is just really nice to have. When you are vying for a Cup though, I don't know if a guy like him is necessary. Great to have, but unnecessary. Doing that, our fourth line becomes Begin - Chipchura - Lapierre/Laraque, which gives us room for whenever we decide to play Denis and maybe do some call ups when Begin is hurt.
