In a good or average draft Hickey would have gone around the 20 mark according to several pundits.

To me if you compare him to other prospects from that draft he is still as likely to make it as an impact player as he is to never see the NHL.

That said I won't call him a bust until we see where he ends up. If he makes the NHL and becomes a top pairing Dman which is still possible then I wouldn't call him a bust at all.

Was he worthy of fourth overall? That is definitely debatable but I just don't see him as a bust just yet.
