There is no need to trade Lapierre now, Let"s see what Chipchura can really do, Lapierre has a very affordable one-way contract. he can be placed in the stands no problem while Carbo is evaluating Chipchura. Both are weak on face offs. I can"t imagine they can"t learn with Carbo and Jarvis - two of the best- around to give them adivices.

Last year, Lapierre was supposed to learn how to play right wing with the Dogs. He finally played only at center before being called up. What happened ?

Lapierre nor Chipchura are perfect. A combo of both would make a good player... Let's wait and see.
