I agree with those who have commented on Higgins versatility. He's the perfect utility player--can play just about any role imcluding top 6 during a hot streak. He did have some good chemistry with Kesler before he broke his foot.

Going to go a bit off the wall here, but the way things are shaking down, maybe we'll see the vaunted Big 3/Bottom 9 technique this coming season. Probably not, but something like:

Sedin-Sedin-Kesler
Burrows-Hodgson-Sammy
Higgins-Manny-Hansen
Rupp-Lapierre-Oreskovich

A bit outide the box, yes. But ride the top line then spread the ice time between the bottom 3 lines somewhat equally.
