All the crap talked about Hickey and how LA should have picked Gagner or Voracek is laughable. Gagner is on pace for 18 goals, 47 pts. Voracek 19 goals, 50 pts. both playing a bigger role. Simmonds is on pace for 17 goals, 37 pts. playing 3rd line. We still have Hickey as well as Moller where they belong, developing in Manchester.
Curious to know if you've seen any Monarchs games this year. What are you basing your assessments on? I haven't but I too have been led to believe that Hickey is going to be a number 1 d-man someday. His stats this year are down from last and he's only played 15 of 21 games. Has he been hurt or scratched?
