As far as Chipchura is concerned, well I'm not part of those who don't like him. I'm actually a fan. Still if he improves his offensive skills, so be it, make him a 3rd liner for life, I wouldn't hate that. But as much as we could all think his ceiling could be, he's obviously not in the same league as any top 6 that could leave or come here. As far as forwards we could lose before him, well I do have at least 2....but good might be too strong of a word....
While all you're saying might be true.
Pouliot hasn't proven he can be a solid centerman in the NHL yet.
Also, if we get Pouliot, it wouldn't be for this season, unless we'd make him play on the wing.
But we only have Maxwell and Chipper as the future centermen, we're not letting either one go.
We're not going to trade away the few prospects we have at our weakest position. One of our Ds makes more sense.
