I don't remember the last time I saw Chipchura take a shot on net or make a dangerous pass in the offensive zone, let alone get an assist or a goal.
Some people actually think Chipchura is better offensively than Lapierre?
This year he's not looked comfortable, but last year during his time here, he did make some nice passes, and score a couple of goals on nice shots. He has the ability, he's shown it in the AHL as well, he just needs to get comfortable again. If not, then i'd try Higgins at center again, more than anything, I just don't see us doing any damage with Metro playing...
Chips doesn't have offensive upside like a Pacioretty or anything, but he does have more offensive upside than Begin did, or Matro has. And that's what we need given our depth on the wing IMO...
and if that means the season is over already, then I guess it is...
We aren't winning anything with Metro.
