Moves like Hickey on waivers bugged me more because he didn't even get a cup of coffee to try and show himself and by all accounts he's doing well in NYI.
My problem with the way he was used last year is that they put him between Lewis and Richardson, the no-scoring Kings. In retrospect that was never going to be productive.
I'm sure they decided he doesn't fit the Kings' type going forward, but in the process they can squeeze out other kinds of talent that can be useful. I'd like to see three scoring lines instead of just two.
