He's always been inconsistent and prone to going into emotional "funks" on and off the ice. I've been saying that since day 1. If several seasons with Lindy Ruff didn't break him, I doubt Tortorella has managed to do it in 4 months.
The guy is the definition of a PP specialist. "Specialist," meaning "useless at any other time in a game." Obviously except for the skills competition.
I still maintain that Higgins has some value around the league. The scoring potential is there, it's proven, and he does other things on the ice that make him useful even when he's not putting up points. A relatively inexpensive contact that expires this summer makes for a good deadline acquisition.
