Alzner hasn't had the injury history and has shown himself to be a decent player, with ice time granted. Alzner was also drafted where he should have been. DL didn't like him because he was a what you see is what you get kind of player. Ask the caps fans how they feel about him. In LA, it's entirely possible that Alzner would have taken AMarts spot or provided a role that we brought Mitchell in here for. Hickey has some tools but if isn't a bust he is very close to being one.

I just don't see him beating anyone out of a job. DD44 beat him out. Voynov has surpassed him. Muzzin has more grit. Forbort will be coming up eventually. Deslauries has all the skill set of Hickey. Is he bust for the NHL, doubt it. Is he a bust for the Kings, odds are not stacking up in his favor.

After Scuds and Mitchell leave: 12/13 season
JJ Doughty
Greene Voynov
Martinez Muzzin
Hickey

IF LA does not pick up/resign a vet

Hickey really has to come strong this camp!
