Upon completion of the WJC...

.....Thomas Hickey is still my fave Team Canada defenseman. He had one mediocre game, other than that he was stellar throughout the tournament...IMHO. In comparison to Alzner, I think Alzner has more poise and is probably a better thinking player, but I believe Hickey is more talented, especially with the first pass out of the zone, and he's a better skater too. I don't think there's anything that Hickey is better at than the rest of the Team Canada blueliners, but overall, I think he has better skills than the rest. Compared to other defensemen for example, Doughty has a huge shot, Subban is more physical, Schenn and Pyett might be better skaters...but combining all skills, I think Hickey is better rounded than the rest. I wouldn't label Hickey a mistake pick just yet. There's no doubt he was a surprise when selected, but I don't think he's a mistake...D'
