@#$!@$%. He's played in only two pre-season games, was very strong in the 2nd half of the first one and the best Habs forward in the 2nd one and people wonder why he's still around? At least Gerard Gagnon said Chipchura was improved compared to a year ago.

Thankfully, the list of young players Villeneuve has trashed in recent years is long and most have come out to be good ones...Andrei Kostitsyn, Tomas Plekanec, Andrei Markov, Mark Streit all come to mind...
The Montreal media has always been known to bring down players and often, it is unjustified. Another example, on RDS, they've been critisizing O'byrne and Geoges play so far in camp. IMO the two of them have been very good so far especially OByrne who seems to be more confident. I remember few days ago Gaston Therrien saying that OByrne was having a poor camp and wasnt physical enough. As he was saying this we could see a clip of OByrne totally LAYING OUT a Panther in the last game. How's that for objectivity?
