When did he request a trade? And I don't agree that he's eclipsed by our depth chart. From accounts of Manchester watchers, he's been the best D-man down there this year outside of Voynov.

This is really it.

That said, I think we'll really regret this move. I'm not saying Hickey will be some all-star or anything, but he's going to be a solid, 20 minute a game D-man and someones getting him for free. If he clears waivers I'd be shocked.
