That is a little flimsy justification I think. If a player is flashy and dominates, he only plays well against Jr. Players, but if you play and don't do well in the tournament and aren't flashy, you'll be a solid pro player? Let's face it, Subban outplayed Hickey at the WJC and by a fair margin. You didn't watch these guys anymore than most have, so like myself, you have no idea who will be a better player, but your "Gut" feeling is that Hickey will be better. Hopefully your gut will prove out for the Kings, because basically, your making the same hope that most are, without a solid foundation to base your thinking on.
