I don't think Higgins (or Latendresse) have the requisite sandpaper to play a "mean game", which is a pretty nebulous term. Higgins certainly finishes his checks but with the purpose of retreiving the puck as opposed to physically punishing the opposition. I think the best we can hope for with both players is that they are tenacious about protecting and acquiring the puck, which isn't bad considering they both should be looking for dead space in the slot to create scoring chances.
