Where's Chipchura?



Sorry I had to. But seriously, is he expected to play soon? I know he had shoulder surgery but he is skating again isn't he?

It was reported somewhere that he'll be re-evaluated by doctors in two weeks.

Chipper picked a horrible time for an injury to keep him out of the lineup. At this stage in his development, he's running out of time. He's been around for a few camps now and can't seem to crack (or say in) the lineup. At this point, he risks being bypassed on the depth chart by guys like Maxwell and Desharnais. I always liked Chipper but I'm worried he'll be a career AHLer.

Like he would of pick it on purpose. He had shoulder surgery in June and is practicing and doing contact in pratiice but dr. says no to game contact as of yet, Sergis had his surgery a week prior to chipc so it should be soon now.

There's just one catch - Chip has a one way - the others don't.

Chip is safe for a year. And even if he has just an average season - a good playoff showing will get him a 2nd contract.

I'm a huge Chipchura fan but at this point I agree, he HAS to solidify a spot THIS year or White will soon be the better option for the fourth line center role.

I say White instead of Maxwell/Desharnais because those guys are better off in the top nine.

True. Desharnais looks like a possible future star player

Yes, it's too early to tell, I know.

And a good playoff showing he will have! That guy is a competitor, the bigger the game the better he will play.
