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.
Now he is. But the first two months (give or take a few weeks) of the season he wasn't the same Chris Higgins, as he was in Montreal. He looked disinterested.......confused and a lot of times.....his body language appeared to say he didn't really feel like playing. The season started without Chris Higgins. Oh he was there in the lineup, but he wasn't there.

But he has come around and he has been playing like the Chris Higgins I watched with Montreal, for the last month. He's never been much more or less than a 20 to 25 goal scorerer. That's what he's always been.

This year, he's on a pace (if he keeps up this pace) to score even less than he did in Montreal. This could be his worst professional season in terms of offensive production.
