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.
what he said..which is why i wanted no part of him (Kotalik).
Higgins is a player you could definitely get some value back for..the question is, is Sather looking for the future, or is he looking to fix this year.
That could be the defining question of the next decade...I think this year would be the PERFECT year to actually tank and get that elite player. IMHO Taylor Hall > Tavares...which is really saying something.
