Well considering Higgins is out for 6 weeks . I think we should bring in a replacement that could fill in for the mean time.
2nd or 3rd Pick
For once, there is now a spot for Lapierre or Kostitsyn on the roster. One of them will be brought up, and unfortunately for Kostitsyn, I hope he won't be called to make him understand he won't make it to the NHL if he doesn't work hard. Some players weren't shown that in the past, and we now pay the price for it (see some russian names here).
I don't think this trade would be a good idea because the habs alredy have the depth to replace Higgins. Bringing Jonhson on the first line would do the job and there are a few players in Hamilton that you can recall to replace jonhson on the 3th line.
Also, trading Streit is a bad idea because the team has some injuries
in defence and if he leaves who will replace him on defence: Dan Jancevski, André benoit, Danny Groulx...
