It's probably not that Higgins mighn't make a 'OK' centre; he's probably got the hockey smarts to play any position and not embareass himself. Winger probably suits his strengths the best.

Most would agree that his game lends itself more to being the guy in deep on the opposition boards rather than first guy back on the backcheck. Or the guy receiving the nice passes instead of making them. And that's probably why the Habs ended up converted him from centre when he joined the organization.
