I mean, stop looking just at Higgins. Get over it, he's not the future offensive star everybody is waiting for. The only young player on this team who can eventually become a PPG scorer is Tomas Plekanec, which is, in my opinion, a more complete Saku Koivu in the making. Kostitsyn JR will complete Plekanec and Kostitsyn in the future as our first line left winger. I could see Higgins as our future 2nd line left winger, completing probably Pacioretti and an offensive player acquired via trade or as an UFA. Chipchura, Lapierre, D'Agostini/Latendresse is going to be our third line, and who knows what our 4th line will look like.
Anyway, all this to tell that don't get TOO excited about Higgins. I like this player as well, but let's be realistic and not hope 80 pts/ 40 G per year from him. 60pts per year would be awesome IMO.
