Higgins has got to bury his chances

It's just his third season: be a little more patient. I think he's been contributing regularly so far, not with the same flair that Pleks or the K-brothers, but I think he'll grow into a well-rounded second-line winger that'll give you 25-30 goals every year.
Also, do not be tricked by this year's stats as they are pulled downwards because of Koivu's line being shuffled all the time. That whole line has issues this year. Usually, 4th years are breakout years for players in the NHL. So we'll see how it goes next year, but I still have faith in this guy to lead the Habs for a good long while.
Btw, I know you said not to talk about it, but all of these arguments go for Latendresse X 2 (as he is younger than Higgins and is playing on worse lines). Sorry couldn't resist.
