I think that’s a huge difference, don’t you ?
I mean, Higgins has done zilch offensively and is probably not going to be re-signed. Gilroy still could turn out to be a diamond in the rough. I know if I had my choice, I would much rather deal Higgins.
Plus, if Jokinen is coming, well, duh, he’s a forward. The Rangers only have six defensemen, and one of them (Redden) has been close to doghouse-ville lately.
Sorry for the unusual new post during the game.
THE LATEST: IT’S HIGGINS! Probably going to be announced after the game … they better put Higgins on the bench so he doesn’t get hurt!
IT GETS BETTER: THE RANGERS ARE GETTING THIS TOUGH CENTER, PRUST. MORE OF THE SAME TYPE OF PLAYER THEY HAVE, BUT TOUGHER.
