Lang will be gone next year, so Chipper will be in im convinced. Begin will be out, Dandenault also. Possibly one of Kovalev/Tanguay/Koivu as well and if Plekanec/Higgins sign for more than expected, maybe 2 of our 3 Big names will have to go.

So, on the contrary, there might be more than enough room for Lats and Chipper next year.
The only possible spot for Chipchura next season IMO is the 4th line C. There's already Lapierre (C) and Laraque (RW) on the 4th line. Where do you see Chipchura? LW?

Koivu (he'll retire as a Hab)
Tanguay (I can't see how he would not be re-signed)
Higgins
AKostitsyn
Plekanec
SKostitsyn
Pacioretty

That's already 7 players without Kovalev and Latendresse. We can assume that Carbo will continue to roll three offensive lines. Where's the place for Chipchura?

And I didn't say that Lats doesn't have a place in this team. He's just not a good fit.
