cmon now seriously???

power??? a-kost goes to the front of the net more than him. all this crap about higgins being a power forward is outdated as well. he is not. he never cuts to the net. if he has a lane he will go towards the goalie to where there is no angle and shoot. like kovy, he is become a master of the no angle shots.

he is a poor mans lethinen if we are to make that comparison.
