I'm still wainting to see that in the NHL... so far Lapierre is better than him in all categories you mentionned...

Chipchura so far seems to not be able to translate his success in the AHL to the NHL... it might be because the level talent is just to high for him...

He might become a usefull nhler one day, but so far, considering his middle of the 1st round selection, he's definitely a bust...

He looks a lot like Ryan White, but at least, White was a 3rd round selection...
