I think that Hickey is going to go into the AHL and do very well, and earn his way onto the Kings before the end of the season. As unfair as it seems, (and as overplaying it as others are), Subban still has to get rid of the tag that he is all sizzle and no substance. I would say that he has a lot more to prove than Thomas at the pro-level.
And that tag comes from where exactly?

I'm pretty sure if you talked to his coach and the Team Canada coaches, they'd tell you he's a fine hockey player. And a great prospect.

I don't think you can make it in Team Canada and dominate the OHL by being 'no substance' as you put it. Either you're gifted or you're not.
