His usefulness hasn't expired, you just prefer other players on the team and for your info, neither you or I know if Habs management share your opinion and I doubt they do. You are taking a 21 game slump (where he was almost 0,50 PPG) and using it as an excuse. Higgins, along with Tanguay and AKost, has one of the better takeover/giveaway ratio on the team. You need these kinda players.
Higgins will likely be looking for 5 million or thereabouts next season. I say good day to him. We simply cannot afford to pay 3rd line wingers that much money.
