We should try and package him into a deal to get a top4 D-man at the deadline imo. If we wait to long he's going to lose all his value and we will end up trading him down the road for a 2nd or 3rd round draft pic, or just simply lose him to free agency.
Do you suggest that Gainey start calling GMs and announce to the world that he wants to trade Chris Higgins before his value diminishes? That type of proactivity is unthinkable. Any possibility that Higgins will be traded would come up when Gainey and another GM are discussing other players.
Having said that, I admonish you for opening a redundant thread on this subject. Go back in the archives and see how unoriginal you are.
