Honestly, and I'm gonna get laughed at for saying this....I would not trade Ryan White right now. I would be more tempted to let Chip go than White. But I'm just thinking that Calgary could be tempted to bring the kid back home.
Well Kyle Chipchura is a good western boy, who has represented Canada. He's a lot more hyped and "cherished" than White.

Yeah, trading for Tanguay and Lang wasn't significant at all, I mean, when you compare that to getting Giordano or Schneider...

To Calgary: Chipchura + O'Byrne
To Montreal: Giordano + Keetley

?
uggg...No THANKS!

Giordano is an ok yougish player, but he's soft as butter and still on pace for over 70 minutes in the penalty box... you know why? because he constantly takes bad penalties, mostly when he gets beat in the defensive zone.

He's got some skill, but lacks the defensive zone awareness to be an effective top four dman, and brings Zero to the table physically speaking. I'm amazing myself by saying this, but overall we are better off with Chipchura+Brisebois than with Giordano (since Giordano would essentially be picking up minutes from Brisebois).

With Carle/Weber both close to getting a shot to stick with the team (not too mention Subban/Weber/Fisher/McDonaugh coming up the pipeline), we really don't need to be giving up an asset like Chipchura for a guy like Giordano, who at this point has shown little more than being a bottom pairing dman with enough offensive/puck moving skill to be a solid 2nd pp unit player.

Chipchura, on the other hand, continues to look like a guy that can be the bedrock of a great third line, not too mention the leadership qualities and winning mentality...

if he gets moved, I'm betting it will only be as part of a package for an all-star caliber player, I don't see Gainey dealing him otherwise.

Chip also captained Team Canada to a WJC Gold for Brent Sutter, the brother of the Flames' GM. Darryl was all smiles when he drafted Phaneuf in 2003 with knowledge about his character from brother Brent who coached Dion in Red Deer.

Read on another board that Kypreos said again today on Hockeycentral @ noon that Schneider is still coming to the Habs and Higgins is involved...If Kypreos honestly thinks Gainey is gonna trade Higgins for a 39 year old UFA to be with a lousy contract I want some of the stuff he is smoking...Anyway how can Higgins be going to ATL when he is going to Tampa as part of the Vinny package...

Because he's going to Atlanta in a deal where Montreal would land Schneider and Kovalchuk
