Right now I'd take Muzzin as well, but it's not a 'case closed' decision.
Alright I agree with this. Hickey has been playing very well of late and I hope he can stay healthy and keep it going. I always said he had NHL level talent and belonged in the NHL and he is proving his naysayers wrong.

Same with Muzzin though, he has been solid since he came up but like any other rookie (except the elite) he has had his ups and downs but you could see that he was clearly getting a little better almost every game and now he is starting to show us what he can do at this level and that he belongs here without a doubt.

I stand by my forever prediction about Muzzin, 3rd pairing young dman who can skate pretty well plays a bit of a physical game and has a little bit of upside.

So far so good, there will still be bumps in the road but they are starting to even out.
