Hickey's played well but I think he's the odd man out on this. He's small and quick and smart and can skate the puck out of danger - all the things Vis does, but much better.

I have high hopes for Hickey though, I love his offensive instincts. I hope he sticks, somehow.
Once Visnovsky arrives, Finley is a goner. Not sure if he'll be claimed when he's put on waivers so he could help the kiddies at the Bridge.

Hickey better get ready to sit on his ass in the pressbox, but we all know that injuries will play a role.
