I personally have more faith that Higgins will play like that when it counts than Raymond keeping this up when things get tough. We haven't really seen Raymond play well in the playoffs at all yet.

I wouldn't be so quick to say it's an easy choice, but I'm most likely leaning towards Higgins at this point.
This.

Agree with the rest. I would lean towards Higgins over Raymond as well. Higgins just seems more comfortable in tight checking games and those are all we usually see come playoff time.

I think David Booth is going to have to fight for his job this season. He's in tough against some pretty good depth.
