Graves had 17 goals the year after he had 52.

Higgins isn't having an "off year" and he isn't having a "rough year." He's playing the same way he played in MTL. The only reason he scored more there than he is here is because he played with better linemates there.

Do you people actually watch hockey, or do you just sit and look at stats? This is the same Chris Higgins. Same thing. He blew tons of chances there, too.
