I'm willing to bet there is more to this than anyone knows. Given the team the DL has built on the ice, I'm going to trust in him that he's doing what is best.

Hickey is a puck moving defensemen, yet the current roster has 3 Young guys already in place in Doughty, Voynov and Martinez. I'm willing to bet Hickey was unhappy as he has put in his time, there is just no room for him.

None of us know what the interest level was from other teams, maybe DL did try and shop him around and had no buyers. Maybe DL has a replacement in mind for him already that's an upgrade, just have to wait for some things to happen. Who knows.

I do know the Kings have no real holes in their lineup and fresh off a Cup win. I'll "trust" that DL knows what he's doing, regardless of what some of us armchair GM's think.
