I would refuse to believe that had Lombardi gotten an offer, that he wouldn't have traded him. From a purely selfish point of view, it makes Lombardi look better if he gets something for Hickey in a trade, as opposed to losing him for nothing. He has no reason to not get something for him if he can.
Teams knew Hickey had to hit the waiver wire at some point. the NYI for instance were not going to trade assets for Hickey.
