Good to hear, hopefully he steps it up because we could really use some help down the middle.

good decision, imo he should have been called up immediately after lang's injury...

Better late than never. He can prove a lot this time, I hope he takes the proverbial bull by the horns.

One thing he does better than most of our centres is position himself in the d-zone. He may not be as flashy, but I notice him with posession of the puck in the d-zone moreso than say Plek or Lang (when he was playing). With a little more experience the confidence and puck poise will come.

He's also bigger than Plekanec, and maybe any of the other centres in the line-up.

Hopefully, because the road to the NHL is longer than expected for Mr.Chipchura.

I disagree. It might be because he's nervous, but he's mistake prone in his zone. Plus he's loses all the faceoffs...

ok but I don't think we disagree... i'm just not getting my point across well...

That's what I meant, that's the learnt part (puck poise, decision making, confidence with the puck). His positioning is intuitive and maybe why you've noticed his mistakes (like I have) is because he's there (in position) to make them.

Meanwhile with Plek and Lang our D are trying to make haily-mary-esque passes.

Glad to see Chip's been called up. He's got something Plek's hasn't grown yet.....balls.

I hope he's with us for the rest of the year.

I personally think that Chips should have stayed with the team since his last call-up... here's to hoping that he sticks this time. He's definitely the type of player that this team is really lacking at the moment.

Would've given a chance to Lehoux on an offensive line.....Not the end of the world, but let's hope we'll be deeper at center next year at least for Hamilton, 'cause there's no way Lehoux signs with us again.

Someone who actually goes into the corners? Yeah I guess we don't need anyone like that on the team.
