I enjoy how quickly people pass judgement on players on this board.

24 years old and you're saying Higgins doesn't even have the possibility of eventually becoming a PPG scorer?
Oh, and we're intolerant of Kovalev because he's older, already has all the skills to be a 100 point player in this league, yet even on his good nights will sometimes just give up on the puck and stop trying during particular shifts. Luckily, this season I'll be the first to admit that he's been much more of a positive than a negative, and he's heading to around a PPG season - this is what he needs to do.
When he's on - he's one of the best pure talents in the league. The crap he pulled last year, though, wasn't acceptable.
