Is this "how to watch hockey 101?". Of course habs fans never look at the guys without the puck! Duh! They just want to see Kovalev deke around everyone on the ice.

I won't even post the little "help" smilie.

D'agostini has created many turnovers that led to offensive rushes in his 13 games played and is decent at defensive positionning (keep in mind he's still a rookie and has alot to learn). He is also really good at cutting passing lanes.

This is not about who will win Higgins spot (because we all know he will reclaim it by working his a$$ off as he usually does when he comes back). This is more of a comparison between two "similar" players and what they bring to the table.

I personally think D'agostini will develop into a better offensive player than Higgins without being a defensive liability.
