former 4th overall for 5th overall

Thomas Hickey
for
Blake Wheeler

Wheeler fills Frolov's LW spot (and is his 3rd/breakout year). 6'5 winger incoming from Boston while Voinov's emergence makes this a gimme deal for LA, no? I mean, Hickey seems to have lost a lot of traction with the LA fanbase due to the quick emergence of Doughty, the (eventual) arrival of JJ this past season and Voinov pushing up from below. Boston was very high on Hickey in his draft year and are not going to want to pay Wheeler what he will get in arbitration.

Done deal, folks?

Makes a lot of sense. What is Wheeler rumored to be asking for?

I'm not sure, but the Clarke MacArthur deal has to have the B's brass nervous...

Add Savard and Moller and I'm game. (assuming Stoll can be dealt elsewhere)

I'm too high on Hickey to deal him for Wheeler alone, though.

No.

I like Hickey's upside too much. I don't think Wheeler is going to progress much from where he is now. A lot Boston fans seem to be eager to get rid of him.

Hickey + for Savard

Wheeler's regression this season is a cause for concern. While he has the size, he doesn't appear to use it much. Reminds me of Eric Daze.

I think Loktionov is the Kings only legitimate scoring threat within the organization at the moment so I'd be hesitant to give him up. Same with Weal. I'd rather it be Kozun.

No way I would trade Kozun unless it is a package and a big return coming. Too high on this kid.

I know that Hickey has a lot of potential, but we're talking about a guy who hasn't played one game in the NHL and only 27 AHL games in two years at a position that we're rich in. On the other end, we're getting a guy who's played 163 NHL games in two years and has scored 39 goals at a position that we're deficient in. Makes a whole lot of sense to me, and make no mistake, I think any NHL GM will take the proven young talent over the unproven young talent any day.

What about Savard + Wheeler + BOS 2nd Round for Johnson + Scott Parse?
Seems reasonable to me but f not, what would it take to get Johnson?

If the Bruins don't like or can't afford the arbitration award can they find a better deal than say Martinez and 2nd round pick?

I wouldn't be in a rush to offer Hickey until we can see what the kid can actually do over a longer period of time.

Give us some ideas as to why he seemed to struggle this year. I would like to understand why he seemed to have a tough season.

I trade Hickey for Wheeler in a heartbeat.

I want Savard too. So: Stoll, Moller, Hickey, 2nd for Savard, Wheeler, 4th. I think that's somewhere close to fair.

A speedy sniper with a nose for the net who can wheel in and out of traffic. This kid is a keeper. He's been told at every level that he's too small, but he gets the job done and the job done well. Reminds me of someone else.

Dont let this one go, Deano.

So if this is the case then Boston would never trade Wheeler for Hickey, end of debate?

As long as he doesn't ask for "stupid" money and doesn't take up Manhattan Beach real estate as his main hobby, he is welcome to stay.
