If we manage to get a real #1 center our 3rd line should be Latendresse-Koivu-S.Kost, if not then replace him with Chipchura, simple answer really

I think Kosto, Begin, and Laraque would be a great line, and fun to watch!

Over Kosto, Begin, and Laraque? I would much prefer these three. What a line that would be! Chips is too soft, and Laps is a good pest, but really, can he scrap? Kosto, Begin, and Laraque can all drop the golves, and I think they can all score too. Look at how good Kosto was in the playoffs this past year!? Look at how many good ****fs Laraque had in the last playoffs as well. Kosto, Begin, and Larque would be one of the better 4th lines in the NHL IMO. Bump Chips to the 3rd line maybe, or trade him!

Get off the glue Dude!!!

Lookit, centerman are not a premium with this, so Chipper is going to be needed in this lineup within the next year or two. Dumping our younger players is only a short term solution, so I say stay the course. With Koivu in his thirties & his health always being a question injury wise every season, methinks we better sit on the kids that are ready or just about ready to on the big team.

not both of 'em

Remember that Bob Gainey tried very hard to add a Mats Sundin quality like center to our team. He tied to add a center better than both Koivu and Plekanec to have 3 quality centers. Every great team must have a least 3 centers who are better than than the average.

the habs have 2 center that could be named better than average in Koivu and Plekanec.

Early in their respective careers, both Lapierre and Chipchura are lesser than the average center in the NHL.

And remember that Gainey would have added an elite center to the mix in Sundin. So I can't imagine Gainey going in the playoffs this year without a third quality center. He surely has a plan B. With about 7 M$ under the cap a lot is possible. He could add a denfencemen and he could also find a center via trade.


A think we will find a center someway somehow from now until the trade deadline.

It is ok to have Lapierre or CHipchura in the linup at center but not BOTH of them. Lapierre could be a winger in the future.
