The point is preseason doesn't matter. Markov's only played 1 preseason game. He deserves to play much more than any other Montreal defenseman. Komisarek didn't play last night, and deserves to play more than Traverse. It doesn't mean they won't be played according to their talent and work ethic come regular season, it just means preseason doesn't matter.

Personally, I don't even know who won between Montreal and Toronto last night, much less what type of minutes everyone saw. That's how important preseason is, in my opinion.

As for Higgins on the 4th line, I for one think it makes sense. Chris is still just 20 years old, is used to NCAA hockey, and will likely be playing at least twice as many games this season as in any season in his past. The biggest Higgins misconception is that he is the saviour for the 2003-04 season. That just isn't the case, as management is clearly showing signs that they are going to ease him in slowly and he will be a key part of Habs' teams beyond this season.

To avoid rushing his development, he is getting less than average ice time, but that is compared to guys who have all played in the NHL before. He is being tested out at both LW and C to see what options management have. This is just good management of a young resource, and I am very confident that management will insert Chris into more and more important roles as they see his development progressing as planned.

Somebody had to fill the 4th line centerman role. Next game , it might be reversed. Maybe they wanted to see Plakanec a bit more this game, and Higgs will get more icetime next game.

It's just how things go in the preseason. Relax.
