Huh how exactly are those guys journeymen? Mitchell could be considered on but Greene and Scuderi have only played for two teams and Drewiske has never suited up for anyone but the Kings. Martinez is also older and has put in his time in the system and seniority plays a big role in how the Kings deal with their prospects.
EVERY player on the list was drafted AFTER Hickey (ie had one less year to begin with). Sauve played roughly as many games last year as Hickey did in his "injured" season, but played some NHL.
None of Mitchell, Greene, Scuderi, and Drewiske are core pieces. They are all spare parts. If Hickey were a great prospect, none of these guys would be in his way.
Martinez was drafted the SAME year. He was also drafted later. That isn't more seniority. It is a different path.
I'm not saying Hickey won't be an NHLer. I'm saying that he is very disappointing given where he was drafted (so far).
