We could have gotten rid of Higgins. It would have made the Gomez trade impossible and we'd still have McDonagh.
Without Gomez they wouldn't have signed Gionta or Cammalleri.

Gomez, Gionta & Bourque vs McDonagh & Higgins. Right now everyone would take McDonagh but Gionta & Cammy made the Habs competitive.
