If we wanted Dumont we need to free him a spot on 1st or 2nd line wing, right?

Who is your weakest link among Koivu, Kovalev, Samsonov, Ryder, Ribeiro and Higgins?

Higgins is a natural center, drafted as one and moved to the wing because we had a jam in that position. I dont see how he couldnt return to that position, with the Carbonneau and Jarvis coaching. Hes actually still one of the better faceoff men we have on the team and does have playmaking skills to put 1:1 goals/assists type of numbers. Imagine one of the following:

Samsonov Koivu Kovalev
Dumont Higgins Ryder

OR

Ryder Koivu Kovalev
Samsonov Higgins Dumont

OR

Samsonov Higgins Kovalev
Dumont Koivu Ryder
