That is why I've suggested trading away Martinez
instead but perhaps, that's not the best of ideas either.
Hickey was nhl ready last year and I expect him to be that much better this year. Even if he did perform well, there's still no room for him unfortunately unless there's a roster move made.
Martinez is only 2 years older than Hickey and he already has established himself as a bottom pair/2nd unit PP defenseman in the NHL. Why would you move him to open a spot for a player who hasn't even played a single game in the NHL? Martinez isn't "NHL ready", he is "NHL established".
If Hickey beats out Drewiske and Muzzin in camp, he will be the #7. If he doesn't, then maybe another team picks him up and gives him a shot. Or he ends up back in the AHL for another year.
Martinez > Hickey/Drewiske/Muzzin
