Higgins - Elite checking line centre with potential playing on top 2 line. Mike Peca comes into mind. He may not be as dirty as Peca but certainly he'll be as effective, if not better than Peca. And of course, it is just my opinion.
as much as I don't mind trading either of them... i think they will both be solid players... they just take a little more time to develop... and i don't mind waiting... especially for hainsey (we're deep up front)
DO IT. Higgins future is a good 3rd liner and 2nd liner at best, isn't it?
Oh no... According to McKeen's Hockey Prospects, Higgins is an uptempo first line player with tremendous offensive upside who will be a catalyst... no more prospects, Bob, excepted Hossa and Hainsey...
As secretive as Gainey has been so far, I find it hard to believe anything the media believes or wishes what trades were being negotiated.
That being said, I am not saying Higgins is an under or an overpayment for O'Neill, because I really don't know, I am just saying this sounds alot like the media trying to cure our curiosity, which they are so good at doing!
