Wow - I thought he cleared yesterday. I forgot that weekend waivers were 48 hours.

They aren't. New CBA, waiver periods are uniformly 24 hours.

WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I was hoping we could acquire him in a trade for a 3rd or 4th rounder for awhile but I'll definitely take him for free

Not really surprising with the Visnovsky ordeal.

Not suggesting Hickey will replace Visnosvky but a little more depth might mean you don't have to feel pressure to rush Reinhart, or something.

Makes a lot of sense. Best of luck to him, that is probably the best fit possible for him in the NHL.

NYI hoping to strike gold twice via waivers...hopefully Hickey can pull a 'Grabner' and NHL-ify his career track.

Great.

Now instead of the board telling us over and over how much of a bust Hickey is, we're gonna get reamed for letting him go

Great fit for both org and player. Cheers to a long NHL career for Hickey. Poor kid had a rocky start with injuries, but he's going to be a #3-4 defenseman for a long, long time. Mark my words.

Always had a feeling this would happen. Hickey the protoypical Snow pick up - a former high pick with potential unfulfilled.

Crazy how far he's fallen since being drafted 4th overall to being a waiver wire pick-up.. Always thought he'd be a talented D-man.

In addition to what Starpainter said, Hickey actually wasn't placed on waivers until Monday either.

Glad to see him get a shot in the NHL. Wasn't going to happen with the Kings, they're just too good.

Glad the isles took a shot on this one. I think Hickey has the talent, he just has been hurt and got buried underneath other guys who havent been injured. We'll see how this goes but im happy the isles made this pick up. Finley, not so much, but this i like

What a ****ing idiot Lombardi is. The kid is the smartest defenseman in Manchester and has finally become a solid defensive defenseman who can still move the puck a little bit and he never gives him a shot. Such a ****ing joke. Why draft him that high if you're never gunna give him a shot?
