Matt Greene and Davis Drewskie, Kyle Quincey and Tom Preissing all had better +/- than Doughty or Johnson and all played on the same team. Does that speak to Doughty and Johnson's reliability defensively or is +/- only useful when it serves your purpose?

As for the question, I've only seen Hickey play at the WJC and yes he looked terrible. I'm assuming he's better than that, but until I personally see otherwise I have to go with Subban.
