Please explain how he no longer has a place on the team. Having Daggs doesn't mean there is no place for Higgins. For all you know, BG and GC have already someone in mind that they don't see as a fit, and I'm pretty sure it's not Higgins.
All of the following have been decisevly better than Higgins this season

Kovalev, Tanguay, AKost, Latendresse, D'Agastini

SKost has been marginally better. that makes Higgins a 4th liner, and I would rather have guys like Kostopolous and Begin manning the 4th line. It should come as no surprise to anybody that we have played our best hockey of the season when he is out of the lineup. Having a liability eating up icetime from productive players like Latendresse and D'Agastini is what put us in the slump and his injury got us out.
