Tell me more about it. I never saw Higgins centering a line in the NHL and thus don't know if he would be wasting his talent there... do you?

I guess Carbonneau will try to equilibrate the talent on his lines. The team may respond better by having Plekanec centering the fourth line, Higgins the second one and Latendresse playing with Koivu and Ryder. Time will tell, but if Higgins can help Samsonov and Kovalev, everyone is winning there. Buffalo isn't no.1 in the East because they put all their talent on one line.
