Thanks Mike. I know Higgins is a lot faster and better skater then Chipchura, the wirst shot of Higgins is also better.
Chipchura never scored a lot of goals in a season, but that right, he got some decent passing skillz.
Wich type of player you'll compare him ? On his defensive plays ? Kris Draper or more like a Carbonneau or Lehtinen ?
If Chipchura can develop into a 40-45 points wich may be 15 goals and 30 assist in a season will be good for a third line center...
If he got top-two line time and play with decent winger in few years to come, can he develop himself in a more offensive player or he's already near of his upside ?
Well i've seen Chipchura enough...I think if you absolutely want a comparison, Radek Bonk this year is a good start. Although Chipchura plays with alot more urgency and emotion, not to mention the intangibles he brings that Bonk doesn't.
If Chichura plays with offensive wingers, I could definately see him in the 55-60pt range, but they'd have to be pretty good.
