It isn't about good players, it's about situations and circumstances. The circumstances under which Chris Higgins scored most of his goals in Montreal are not being achieved here, primarily because he isn't playing with players that can elevate his statistics beyond his limited abilities. He isn't playing with players that allow him to succeed. His skillset (or lack thereof) requires certain elements for him to be able to score goals.
but why get rid of him then... why not try to rid ourselves of players like Kotalik, Avery, Lisin, Drury (who is a shell of his former self) etc...

he has shown he can pop 25 goals... he is only 26 years old. He is good defensively and is pretty good on the forecheck. He does bust his ass out there. This is he problem w/ the NYR. Higgins should be part of the solution. he is a perfect 2nd/3rd line tweener. he is pay isn't overboared by any means. he brings good attitude to the team as well.

but no... we need to keep the Kotaliks, Lisins, Avery's, Drury's, Voros', Boyles of the game instead. These players are the players (maybe not lisin) that we should be looking to cut bait with. Higgins should be part of this teams future. Unfortunately he probably won't be.
