For those crying foul about poor asset management, realize that it was 6 years ago when the Kings selected Hickey. There was no future for him in LA and no team was going to offer anything noteworthy for a player who has gone through many struggles due to injuries. He's too fragile to withstand punishment at the NHL level.

At some point, you cut your losses and move on. Six years have passed since that pick, it was time to move on and give him an opportunity elsewhere. They probably would have cut Hickey loose at the end of this season anyway.
