As a FL fan, I disagree with the OP completely. The team drafted a young offensive d-man this past yr in Matheson. He's been playing pretty well so far at BC on the top pairing. Given a few yrs, he should be able to contribute offensively in the NHL. Also, the Panthers are not desparate now because they have Campbell signed for another 4+ yrs. Robak should be able to provide offense on the backend probably sooner than Hickey would (Robak is outscoring him in the AHL).

But if it was for Hickey, the most I'd give up is probably John McFarland. I dont really feel that its as much of a need as ursavolta does and so I wouldnt give up anything of major value like a 2nd round pick. Though I guess McFarland is a former 2nd round pick so it should be equivalent but like Hickey, McFarland has struggled to stay healthy and take the next step as a pro. Seems like a fair deal.
