The reason I'd be willing to package a Higgins (and say a Maxwell and a future pick) for Filatov is as follows:

We have plenty of great young LH forwards within the organization. This team desperately needs an elite level RH shot for the purpose of our PP and just to give a different look to netminders. Higgins might have plateaued, and for all we know may never be more than a 2nd tier player. Filatov is bursting with talent, and has absolutely no questions regarding his mind or character. By all accounts this guy is the absolute complete package, and will be a superstar in this league. Higgins is good, but he's replaceable within the organization.
