At today’s practice 4 players were missing.
1. Andrei Kostitsyn is still sitting out (not surprising)
2. Carey Price
3. Andrei Markov
4. Chris Higgins
I don’t mean to sound paranoid or anything… but I’m starting to feel a little weird about Higgins. Especially because he was announced as being in the lineup a couple of games ago… only to have his status changed again later that day… and he still hasn’t played and is missing practice.
Couple that with all those trade rumours for Gaborik… and you’ve got all kinds of people speculating that something is going down.
I guess one thing that leads to all this speculation is that we’re left in the dark to the exact nature of what Higgins injury is…. which might explain why he continues to be absent.
