I'd like to add Higgins speed to NYI's forward corp, and I think he could slot in well next to Tavares, for example, as he likely possesses more offensive skill than most any current NYI wing outside of Okposo.

As another option, I like the idea of "looking at" Tanguay, an impending UFA, as he brings speed, and has complimented top-end talent well in the past (Forsberg/Sakic). However, his price tag will undoubtedly be (too) high, as he currently makes $5 mil+.

From reading past posts, I know you are not a big fan of Tanguay's.
That has not changed. Never been a fan.
