William_Clarkson Posted February 14, 2015 Share Posted February 14, 2015 I like him as a player, but with younger guys breaking in the lineup and making more of an impact, I think it's time to trade Chris Higgins. Yes, I know he had that sick pass tonight, but still. He has a limited NTC (I think he's required to supply a list with 5 teams if asked), but it shouldn't be too hard to convince him to go here: To TB: -Higgins To Van: -2nd Round Pick Detroit would probably be another option. The 2nd will be late one, but it's not like Higgins has that much value right now. Still, may be able to get in a 3rd or something as well, He is an important penalty killer, but as Bonino and Richardson come back you'll have: Richardson, Burrows, Bonino, Hansen, Horvat, Dorsett, Matthias, McMillan, Sedins I guess, etc. That's still a good PK. For goalies, Markstrom probably wants up and I think he has more potential than Lack, so I think Lack can be dealt: To Edm: -Lack To Van: -3rd* -Decent Prospect There second would be worth too much so instead get some decent prospect instead. The only potential downside is Lack knocking us out of the playoffs in a few years. D can stay put. If everyone's healthy you can do something like: Sedin/Sedin/Burrows Vey (off wing, but might work)/Bonino/Vrbata Matthias/Richardson/Kassian Dorsett/Horvat/Hansen ^Kennis can take out Vey maybe depending on the team, but the lines would need to be moved around. Alternatively, Matthias could be kept as a center: Sedin/Sedin/Vrbata Bonino/Matthias/Kassian Burrows/Richardson/Hansen Dorsett/Horvat/Kennis Vey, McMillan Whatever, lot's of options. We can still make the playoffs, but we also make some room for younger players to step up in trading Higgins. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
