Pretty valueable guy that was added for essentially nothing, or at least a minimal cost at this point. Can play a lot of roles for us and if Vigneault has his way, will be a big part of a shutdown line heading into the playoffs.
Loved the signing right off the bat. There was hardly anything to lose signing him and he has turned out to be a valuable player at a great price for us. I hope he stays healthy and is a big part of our playoff run this year.
I would say unsung hero for sure. He's been an integral part of our team. Value players are just as important as your big players in the cap world imo
He's so awesome. I thought it was really noticeable to the teams performance when he was out of the lineup or under the weather.
I read some article that said the Canucks had about a minute to decide whether they wanted him or not at the deadline last year. Great decision to take him.
He's awesome. Can't say enough good things about the guy.
Would be nice if he could find the scoring touch that he had in MTL on a more consistent basis but that might be more reflective of the role he held in MTL compared to VAN.
I think he tends to disappoint when counted on to score but he does so many other things well that he's an ideal support player. I'm with everyone else, I really like him. Fits in perfectly on the second or third line, works his ass off, adds size and grit, is responsible defensively and seems to fit in with the boys like a glove. Lets just keep our fingers crossed that he can stay healthy.
“Nice to be on a team where it feels normal to win,” Higgins said in reflecting to being acquired at the deadline a year ago. “Playing with players who are all-world, makes you better as well. As far as egos and looking at your own statistics, you rarely see that at all on this team. That’s kind of a rarity in this league. You can get guys who really only care about themselves.”
Love Higgins, have been a fan of his since about 3 or 4 games after Nucks got him. I don't really care if he scores a ton, though it's nice to know he has the ability. Great attitude, great work ethic.
I thought he was our best forward during the first month and a half this year. Sure do love having a GM that's able to instill a winning mentality by finding the right players and getting them to resign at below market value.
