Stop giving him so much credit for being a 4th overall pick. He's shown pretty much nothing to warrant that selection, and it looks like DL simply messed up on that one.
Just because he was drafted too high doesn't mean he still isn't a quality defender. Lombardi couldn't move down and wanted a puck moving defenseman, he didn't know he was going to be at the drafting table next year looking at Doughty. There was wasted value, but the logic of the pick wasn't unsound. Hickey hasn't done much to prove he is a horrible non-NHL worthy defenseman either; he still a good prospect, is only 23 years old, and is likely the best offensive defenseman not on the Kings roster at the moment, making him arguably our best puck moving prospect. Doesn't make sense not to include him amongst our best prospects.
On a side note, it is good to see that Andreoff will pass Weal this time around. That was ridiculous last year.
