Who involved him in a trade proposal? I haven't seen it anywhere...
To be honest, last year, I hated Higgins because I was not accepting what he was bringing to the team because I wanted him to bury on all his scoring chances... and I was frustrated at times because so many guys were overating him (comparing him to Iginla).
However, in the end, Chris is a valuable, speedy, forechecking player able to do a lot of things. I just think he has been put under heavy pressure last year to produce, and he just didn't play his game like he used to.
I made a promise to myself, not to watch Higgins' stats this year, and try to evaluate him on his play on the ice. Higgins is like the "free" case on a bingo card : You can ask him anything and he'll be able to do it effectively. He just has to remember what he does well, and build on it. He'll rack up the points fast enough.
I'd not trade him right now. My philosophy changed a little bit after having seen the Penguins trade for Marian Hossa last year, to end up with nothing after the offseason. Our offense needs no change...
