Don't get me wrong, he's a good guy to have on your team, he has ability and he's having an offseason... but I fail to see how he's anything more than a decent gritty two-way player who is probably good for about 20 goals.

Hell, I'd rather have Ryder right now... the guy the Habs fans wanted gone at all costs for having one bad season after two 30 goal seasons.
Higgins has elite speed though, which was a huge hole in Ryder's game. I put a lot of value on speed, so Higgins appeals to me as a player.
