The fuss is/should be about the ice-time he receives, along with the fact that he has always been on a line with players better than him. He also never gets demoted or singled out for poor play. We know his plateau; 25 goals, 25 assists and that's with oodles of ice-time. Give those oodles to someone with untapped potential, because Higgins isn't getting it done offensively.
