I think the guy that should be worried would be a guy like Sergei Kostitsyn. Obviously there is probably little chance of Sergei getting sent down but he seems to be taking his spot very lightly, his effort has been very low in the pre-season and he has been taking many bad penalties. Not saying I want Sergei sent down but seeing Max playing excellent out there you'd think that it might want to wake Sergei up...
I don't think higgins has to worry this season, as I think Pacioretty is a year away form being a top 9 forward, but I could see Pacioretty replacing Higgins next year.

Koivu and Kovalev are re-signed for sure at the end of the year. And if Tanguay fits in he will be for sure as well, as we gave up a 1st rounder for him. Higgins will be restricted and I don't know if we will have the money, and with Pacioretty in the wings he becomes expendable IMO...
