While I disagree with pretty much everything else in your post, I do agree that Higgins gets too much PP time. His skills help the team (especially this team, with tons of PP weapons up front) more at evens and on the PK.

That said, all that stuff about Higgins being a 3rd liner put into a 1st line role is outdated. The vast majority of teams look for power on power matchups these days, and Higgins qualifies for that role. Think Jere Lehtinen.
