Alzner is a fringe NHLer at this point and really only plays because his team doesn't have anyone else to fill his role.

Oh and Hickey impressed me allot with the way he has picked up his game this season. He is steadily becoming a very good pmd with 4/6 capabilities.

I'd stand by it.

Yea and Hickey has dealt with setbacks from injuries at least twice, while Alzner has stayed relatively healthy. In perspective of that, Hickey is about a year or so behind other people in his draft class and would ergo be ready to hit the NHL come next season. Which at this point looks likely given the way he has played this season in Manchester.

If I were Martinez I would be working my ass off this summer knowing this kid is comin for it this year.
