Great decision, Florida is a perfect fit for a young millionaire like him. Plenty of night-life and hot young sexy women in FL state. I guess he'll be able to pursue his drinking & party life-style in Miami right?
Seriously though, good pick-up by the Panthers. Higgins might very well be able to bounce back from the bad years he had. He'll have a chance to re-claim his status as a good and legitimate 20 goals / season NHLer playing on Florida's top two lines.
Very nice to hear for Higgins to get a solid chance to redeem himself. I've always had a soft spot for him with the Habs, and was saddened upon hearing of his departure. Hopefully he can put to rest the "stone hands" label, and really prove to the NHL that he can be that top 6 player that can score for his team. Although, if he continues to decline the way he has, he can still be a good bottom 6, shutdown player for the Panthers.
And the price they have signed him at is very reasonable.
