Maybe Higgins did well in that division but look what he became...
Leblanc is going to be (imo) much better than Higgins and hell Higgins has not been bad since he join the habs (had one bad season and now he's an awful players....he scored 23,22 and 27 goal its not what i call third liner typical stats) i expect him to have huge rebound year next year under new head coach Jacques Martin who is really high on hard working two-way forward like higgins)
