I like Hickey and I want to see him make the team but his window is getting smaller.
JJ, Doughty, Greene, and AMart all have spots barring injury or trade. The space just isn't going to be there and it's looking like he may never suit up in LA.

That to me is a bust, especially at #4 in the draft.

For his sake I think he can make the NHL but it might take awhile. Even Boucher was traded a couple of times before coming into his own. If LA can trade him for something of use I'd be happy but I don't think the league is burning up the phones for Hickey, sort-of-speak.
Would you call Alzner a bust too, had Lombardi draft him instead? He'd be log jammed right behind Greene, Scuds and Mitchell [you could probably throw in DD44 too], in the exact position Hickeys in, waiting to get his shot. Voracek has scored 39 goals in 241 games and is not exactly tearing up the league.Calling Hickey a bust is way too premature, now if you want to talk about Kyle Turris...
