The fans who grumble about Chris Higgins should sober up when they look at the list of all the forwards the Habs have drafted in the first round after Saku Koivu in 1993. Besides Chris Higgins, there were Terry Ryan, Matt Higgins, Jason Ward, Eric Chouinard, Marcel Hossa, Alexander Perezhogin, Andrei Kostitsyn, Kyle Chipchura, and Max Pacioretty. A. Kostitsyn is the only one of the whole bunch we can honestly say has a clear edge over Higgins, although Pacioretty might get there some day.
