Chips has improved his speed. He can be a very gritty player, is good along the boards, with some offensive abilities as a playmaker and with garbage goals. He has a set of hands that are underrated. As with Laps he needs to feel comfortable in a role and the yo yo isnt working. I would love to see him on Saku's wing.

How would you rate Chip's speed at this point? His top end seems ok but a lil slow with acceleration? Her whining about Chip doesnt negate the fact that AKost was picked before Parise and Getzlaf among others.

It's also great how you know that his achilles tendon injury he got after being picked with us has no relation with the fact that the guy did not improved his speed as much as needed in all those years...

Now can you actually move on to other things or is Kostitsyn, Higgins and Chipchura the only things you can talk about? Pretty easy to be right when you only specialized in 3 players....

By the way, how's your assessment on Pacioretty....you did say at one point that you were analyzing him for a few games and then would give us your analysis as to if he'll succeed or not in the NHL....
