So safe to say he has a slightly higher ceiling than Postma?

Also, is Hickey back in the minors?
Slightly higher. Just a little more physical, otherwise a similiar player, IMO.

Hickey got claimed off waivers and has been establishing himself as a solid bottom pairing guy in NYI. Good skater, makes a nice first pass, solid positionally, but lacking in size and strength. Second on the Islanders in +/- among regular players with a +2. Doesn't make many mistakes defensively, a Toni Lydman type upside it seems.
