I don't think it's so much a lovefest for Dandenault as much as it is managing ice time requirements. Chips continues to develop in Hamilton while Dandenault plays limited minutes or sits in Montreal.
I think they want Chipchura to take over the 3rd line C role, but right now I don't think he's ready. And this is not necessarily the season to learn on the job.
