The real sniper on this line is Lang, no doubt. Higgins job will be to forecheck hard, grind in the corners and be the first to backcheck.
I'm still kinda hoping we see a

Higgins - Chipchura - Sergei

line at some point....

Cause i think it would be funny and your head might explode.

As far as this post goes... Higgins is gonna shoot the puck.. he was second on the team in shots last year for a reason... thats what he does... he shoots... and thats not a bad thing. I think the rest of what you said is true though... his job on the line will be to forecheck and work the boards on the line and also be defensively responsible.

When Lang and Sergei have the puck though... I want him getting open for chances.

For as many chances as he missed... he still scored 27 goals last year....

Thats pretty good.
