Obviously, I'm disappointed in what Higgins has done so far.

But I also believe he might be a guy that we need to split the difference with on projections.

High projections may have set the bar too high with him scoring 30 goals.

But some of the pessmistic projections would have him only at 10 goals. Split the difference and you get a 20 goal, tweener.

The guy has some skill, so we need to get away from the whole "He just isn't that good" garbage.

The reality is that he's probably doesn't have the next level in him that the Rangers hoped, but he isn't a 10 goal scorer either.

Some words or phrases describing Higgins play thus far this season:

pressing, caught in between, indecisive, struggling, fighting the puck, lost...

I think this whole not scoring yet thing has gotten in his head and he is letting affect his increasingly deteriorating play. He HAS to be better than what he's shown so far. He needs to settle down and play on instinct more than thinking too much and missing those brief windows in which you can make a play. Tonight he was shooting the puck into PHXs goalies chests just to get the puck on net instead of looking to make a play. Once he scores off of a give and go or bangs home a rebound he should be on his way to his usual 20 or so we thought we'd get from him.
