The reason I'd trade Higgins, is simply because he gives us a guaranteed return on the market. I seriously doubt we get much for Latendresse at this point, he's too unproven. Higgins is a lock to get us a #3-4 defensemen, and not just a rental type. We are oozing Top 6 wingers, we can afford to lose one.

After having watched O'Byrne tonight, I know, I know, he played on his wrong side and he's young.. I'll still say what I said during the off season, I'd have liked to see Bob get us a legit Top 4 D to fill our gap. This is our only glaring weakness this season to me.
