Kinda what I was thinking. He had gout a couple times in the past and has had staph infections. Shit like that keeps flaring up and never really goes away.

I really like Higgens as a player. He can play on basically any line, and is comfortable on either wing. He produces at a second line pace, is a solid two way player, kills penalties and works hard. He really plays the game the right way.

Could be a decent low risk gamble. We need help down the middle, and especially on the faceoff dot. $3M for Jokinen may mean bye bye to Higgens or Raymond though.

Unlike Malhotra and Pahlsson, Lapierre actually has some offensive abilities. A line of Hansen/Lapierre/Kassian would be a relentless honey badger mofo to play against.
