I see Higgins topping out as a second line player. Not too shabby, but I don't think he'll ever put up the big numbers. Think top-end defensive forward.. average of 50-60 points a year.
I can't speak on what I know.. but the Islanders organization being interested in the other Long Island native is no secret at this point.
SHOULD Komisarek sign on the dotted line, perhaps a deal is worked out to bring over his friend.
Otherwise.. I don't see any deal working out.. and if something was going to be done I imagine the deadline was the place. Much smoke, no fire.
This may take on a McCabe type rumour story, and we should all end it now.
