A Dream Come True For Higgins

from Dave Stubbs of Habs Inside/Out,

Christopher Higgins’s mother, Sue, is thrilled beyond words on Long Island, her son soon to be playing much nearer home. His father, Bobby, is another matter. A Canadiens fan “for 50 years,” Higgins says, Bobby Higgins is burying his son’s Canadiens paraphernalia. Or at least putting it behind closed doors in the basement for now….

I reached Higgins at his summer home on Long Island, where the day’s trade to the New York Rangers was still sinking in. He spoke glowingly of his time in Montreal and of the fans in this city, no matter their voice on any particular night.

New York is a dream come true. But leaving Montreal doesn’t happen without many memories being stirred.
