Compairing Chipchura to Carbonneau...
It's exactly the same situation, Hossa was an overrated 1st rounder who was suppose to be a first liner... they gave him chance after chance, but never was able to get the job done.
Chipchura is supposed to be a defensive-energy guy, yet he makes tons of mistakes defensively and he can't keep up with the pace...
Different styles, yes, but exact situation...
IMO, this is the last chance to see Chipchura in habs uniform.
