Plekanec hasnt had same chances to play with Koivu as Higgins (and Perezhogin) had, lost part of the season and still got decent 29 points in 67 games - which is not that far from Higgins 38 points in 80 games. Higgins may have an edge in goalscoring, but Pleks has his own strong points which might make him even more valuable down the road.
