I'm sure in a week or two, when the regular season gets going and some D-man gets hurt or someones D starts looking bad, Hickey could have had at least the value of a 3rd or so at that point. Why didn't we just keep him, or did we not have any roster spots left?

This will have no impact on what the Kings do at the draft. Anyone they draft is likely 3 years away from the NHL anyways, especially since we don't even have a 1st this year. Besides, we have Campbell, Kolomatis, Deslauriers on the farm, Gravel and Forbort coming into the system in the enxt 18 months and we have drafted three blueliners in the last draft, one of which (Miller) will be turning pro within 18 months as well due to being overage when we drafted him.

If this dictates anything for DL, it might mean he takes a shot at a college UFA D-man, though he hasn't had much luck with those type of players in the past.

Was talking about potential draft picks hitting Manchester.

The Kings picked some over age kids that would hit Manchester pretty quick last draft year.
