Like latendresse Higgins need to redefine his game. He is not a 1st liner and a very average to poor 2nd liner but as a shutdown 3rd line forward he would be perfect.

Actually his poor form might be a blessing in when renegociating his contract and the management could make him accept to change his role to a defensive forward.

I would envision him to play with Chipchura (most definately next year) and form a convetional and very good 3rd line. (to the great pleassure of Erika )

Seriously those lines are IMO better and more suited for the style and expectation for each players(Higgins with a defensive role & Latendresse as a 4th liner). In those roles both Gui and Chris would not have the obligation to score and have a clear mandate to the sucess of our team.

Andrei - Koivu - D'agostini
UFA/Pacioretty/Sergei - Plekanec - UFA/Pacioretty/Sergei
Higgins - Chipchura - Kostopoulos
Begin/Stewart/Laraque - Lapierre - Latendresse

UFA possibilities = Hossa, Gaborik, Havlat, Tanguay, Sedins... kovalev , NO!
