WHEN WILL HABS FANS AND THE COACHING STAFF ALIKE REALIZE THAT CHRIS HIGGINS IS THE PLAYER LEAST DESERVING OF HIS ICE TIME?
He is just AWFUL. No hands, no hockey sense, passes into people's skates all the time. If he is such a defensively aware player like many seem to claim he is, then why is he not one of our top PK guys?
I do notlike Latendresse any more than Higgins, but Lats deserves a chance to get back in the lineup over Higgins.
How he manages to wear the "A" is beyond me................
Move him before he becomes absolutely worthless.
BTW you are being a little too hard on Higgins. He's not supposed to be a 50 goal scorer. He was drafted to be a 2 way center.. He's actually been above expectations. He's lost a lot of confidence this season and he just needs time and help to rebuild it..
You know, there are a lot of guys who play "only" for the money. There are also guys who complain about everything. I'm talking about Malakov's and Samsonov's and Grabovsky's, etc.. Higgins actually bleeds for this team. When he doesn't play well, he feels horrible. He wants the team to win and he never complains about ice time. He does what his coach tells him to and works his ass off even though it doesn't always show in pts. How often do you see him take a selfish penalty? He gives it all for the team. Your team. That's what makes a leader. That's why he wares the "A" on his chest. Remember when the Rangers used to have the highest salary in the NHL before the lockout? The guys who had the most points had the A's and C's but that didn't make them a winning team did it? Kostopolous even wore the "C" for the Kings for some short period of time from what I was told.
I'm just asking you to remember that. I'm not flaming you or anything. I just want you to see that there's more to a player then his stats on paper... I would like to see him score more too, but I can't take away his passion for this team..
Give Higgins some time and don't expect him to be a 40-50 goal player. He's not.
Another note, who's got the most leadership in Hamilton? Who's Captain? Chipchura who was like 4th or 5th in team points when D'Agostini was called up..
