Why would Hickey and Teubert need to be playing for the Kings this season? By my count, the Kings have a pretty solid defense. Why not let the kids grow in the minors? Hickey is 20 and he has yet to play a game in the AHL, let alone the NHL.

Our defense looks something like...
Doughty-Scuderi
Johnson-Greene
Quincey-O'Donnell
(Harrold-Drewiske)

What is wrong with that? I imagine O'Donnell is going to retire at some point, two or three years down the road. Teubert is a long ways away from being an NHLer. Just because the Kings have depth now doesn't mean we have to throw them all with the big club all at once. Voynov, Hickey, Teubert, let them mature! Our defense is no longer a weakness.
