Like every other Kings fan I hope he develops fully and becomes a great Dman. But DL could possibly have got him in the 2nd round, and if he was already gone... so what? we'd just have some other player with 5 years experience in the or-gan-EYE-za-tion - or already playing here.

happy place, happy place...
To be fair to Lombardi if I remember correctly Hickey was being compared to a young Scott Niedermayer. Those comparisons to HOF players always make me cringe. Olli Jokinen was a young Esa Tikkanen at one point, turns out not exactly the same type of character or player.
