To put it simply Higgins likes to take shots, and both Koivu and Tanguay like to pass, and I feel that it might not be a bad idea to experiment with that tweak.
And FYI flamers....I'm not saying we should do this right now, since we are winning and that GAS line is performing adequately. However, I do think that if we start to falter and consequently decide to tweak the top 9 that should be the first one tried.
Latendresse is exactly what Koivu and Tanguay need at the moment. A physical player who can go in the corner, protect the puck and do a few decents passes. Higgins need to learn to pass the puck better if he wants to play with them. Lately, I can't tell the difference between when he passes and when he releases the puck.
