so let me see if im understanding this correctly.
Avery blows coverage on 1 goal against, he's sent to the 4th line. higgins done absolutely nothing all season long and gets time on the 1st line...
granted Avery hasnt really brought much either but he's not a guy you want getting 5 mins of ice time.
They may be shopping Higgins, that could explain it. I hope I keep my avatar
