Remember that he leads the team in points...

Hey our third line was a <b>BEAST</b> last night, totally shutting out the Sundin line. I love those guys, simply outstanding.

I don't mean to bash ribs or anything, but it is my understanding that higgins has the potential to be better then ribs (possibly equiv to koivu)?

From what I heard, they are not the same type of players. Higgins, correct me if I'm wrong, will be more a Peca like player or a better version of John Madden.

Kast was believed to be the "sleeper" of the draft... they said he had the best offensive potential amongst everyone (Zherdev included) who was drafted. Just because of his heathy problems, the lower teams didn't go after him. He has 1st line potential.

I'd expect to see him playing full-time during the 2005-06 season. Next season will be too short.

He was. He's a mistery because he his a two way player with a lot of ofensive upside so I don't know where he will play in Montreal. Could easily be on the top two line or could turn into a decent third liner. Actually, he's a sure bet.

No I don't see Peca or Madden at all. Higgins is an offenisve force. He has good vision and he's a very smart player. I wouldn't call him a flashy goal scorer but he can put the puck in the net or setup plays (I never understood Savard's comments about a lack of creatitivty) Higgins should be a top 6 forward, imo. He gets called a 3rd liner cause of his excellent play in his own end. He's a kid that does all the little things and I consider him our top all round prospect.

I'm not saying what line he will play on in the future, but his talent is as a top 6 forward and if he's on the 3rd line later in his career (not just starting out) then it shows how good of a team we will have.

Higgins has great skill but is nowhere Ribs talent. Higgins will start his NHL career as a third line guy. In the future I see Maxim Lapierre as our Third line center. He's a bigger version of Steve Bégin with more skill (6'2 195).

You're telling us that without Ribeiro this year, we'd still be in the top 10 in the east?

I'd sure like to know who that 2nd center would of been that would of scored 19 goals, had 40 assists for a total of 59 points and would lead the team in points
