Though Higgins didn't look out of place when he played, I'd say Begin and all of the other vets you might replace, have played a lot better than him so far. It is his first pro season after all. I'd prefer someone like Higgins, Komo and Hainsey to actually earn their spots than have them just handed to them because they are young. This isa new season and the habs do have a chance of making the playoffs, so what sort of message does it send when you start give playing time to players based on what they might do in the future rather than what they are doing now? Higs will get a lot more playing time in Hamilton which can only help him.
