Blinded by the light as usual.
Can't hit the net eh??? I wonder how many shots on goal Higgins would have if he could hit the net... considering he is already second on the team in shots.

He has a +/- of 51 compared to Higgins -12.
Plus/minus is a flawed stat.... the fact that the wild have been better than the habs over the course of their careers is a major factor in this... We've only been really good one year of Chris' career. Even in our other year the wild have been a much better 5 on 5 team.
