I understand that stats aren't the only thing when it comes to the game of hockey, and I can understand those that go with Hickey, but I don't understand how it could be done "Easily". Why the comments about taking Hickey "Easily"? Those comments just seem to be thrown in for either amusement or irritation. The only thing that I've seen in my limited viewing of both players and looking at the stats, is that Hickey was drafted higher. It certainly doesn't seem like an "easy" choice to me.
Well, I'm not even looking at stats, I think Hickey is going to be a great player, and a safer choice. Plus 37 on a pretty bad team, he was the right choice as captain. Our entire defence (WJC) was struggling. Hopefully things change this year.
