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.
That's what you took from it, I took something else.

I do feel that people still hold it against Hickey that he was A) a suprise/early selection and B) outplayed by Subban at the WJC.

Time will prove the Kings right
