I will definitely agree with that. Who would you take out of the lineup to put in Higgins (and not some makeshift 4th line duty that Dago is having to put up with, clearly that's useless). Higgins has not had a sold season, obviously due to injuries, but he just can't handle the puck anymore. That being said, with Tanguay and Koivu, the three DO make a good combination, great chemistry, but Dago actually flourishes more in that situation than Higgins. Even Sergei would, although I LOVE the Lang - Kosty sandwich.

Dandenault IMO is very decent a lot of the time. He plays smart hockey. Breezer has been a gaff machine lately, but at the same time he does things which do amaze me (in terms of them coming from him). Unfortunately, we have to be perfect at this point.
