A problem I see with the "shutdown" or defensive assignment for Chris is faceoffs. He's taken over 150 in his career and I believe he's batting about 40%. A large part of a defensive centre's assignment is to win faceoffs and therefore gain possession (keeping the puck away from the opponent's talented players).
I agree with those who say he's not best suited for top offensive line centre duties as well. So what's the bottom line?
Higgins should probably be left at the wing where he is best, and able to contribute best to his team.
