I'm inclined to leave Higgins at wing.

It seems to me that the Habs have pretty good depth at center.

Koivu
Ribeiro
Plekanec
Bonk
Chipchura
Grabovsky
Lapierre
Begin *
Murray *

The problem is at the top end: any two of Plekanec, Ribeiro and Bonk are weak Top 2 Centers. Switching Higgins with any of them wouldn't make it better.

Especially with the doubts about Koivu's eye, I'm pretty sure the rumours of Gainey's pursuit of a top center are/were true. Briere, Gomez or Marleau would really help.
