Though Mikael Samuelsson also fits your criteria - though at a 60% lower cap hit. Heck, Higgins was acquired for a song, didn't make much money and still outplayed David Booth.

I think you get the idea. Finding half point per game 2nd liners isn't exactly impossible.


Finding as efficient goalscorers is. Finding efficient goalscoring PWFs is even tougher. And Higgins isn't a PWF.


I'm saying that until the Canucks land said mythical beast, the Booth griping is kinda moot. Bring in a better top6, and you have a case.


The opportunities are rare to get a top6 PWF. Even rarer to land said player.
