So, from a strategic and economic perspective, the smartest thing the Isles can do now is build carefully through the draft and then have a young core in place when the Hub finally comes online.

As for Higgins, yeah the Isles might be interested in him. I suspect he still has decent market value too. I know he had a crappy year, but he still has nice upside and a is a solid physical winger. But, the Isles don't have the payroll room to give out offer sheets and Higgins wouldn't be worth the compensation under any circumstances.
Yeah, you're right. Sorry I didn't word it properly, they don't HAVE to turn it around, I'd just like them to.
