Seriously people, was Chipchura on the lineup yesterday? You know that I prefer by a mile to have Chip at center and Lapierre on his wing, but that won't be the case. Chip is staying until we know how serious Bouillon's injury is. As soon as Bouillon comes back, Chip is gone. Sadly but that's just the way it. The way the 4th line played yesterday guaranteed a spot for Lapierre. And I'm obviously not talking about his hockey sense 'cause he doesn't have any. I'm talking about the hussling and the chances that line created. Lapierre is staying and will be playing on the 4th.
The way RDS reports that news about Chip, and I'm obviously reading way too much about that, Chip will be asking to be move. He obviously understand that a 3rd line spot will mostly be occupied by an offensive centerman. And then he understands the man crush Carbo and Co have for Lapierre at the center position on the 4th. Chipchura starts to understand that there's just no room for him in Montreal.
I hate this and we'll regret this (though it always depends on who we get) but it might be time for a trade prospect for prospect....
Chipchura for Benoit Pouliot? And we transform again Pouliot into a centerman, his position when he was in junior?
Again, not something I want to do but might as well benefit from the camp that Chipchura had (with the numerous scouts that saw him) and trade while his value might never be that high.
