Let the kids dick around all day about how my guy is better than your guy, it's just a matter of who plays well with whom and can get the most out of their game. If a Higgins can play well alongside a Chipchura, and it allows Tanguay or someone else, be it Lats or S.Kost. to be in a more favorable position in terms of production, great.

It's not top 6 or 7 or bottom 6, it's structuring abilities to be more effective.

S.Kost may have the ability to put up better numbers than Higgins, he'll get a chance to prove it. Tanguay will have a chance to prove he can return to being an elite offenive talent and not what many have dismissed him as, he has millions of reasons to do so.

How the lines shake out doesn't get determined until they know if another offensive type player is added be it Sundin or a trade.
