I wonder if Lou has watched Hickey, Pelech and Leddy play.

The Article is a tad aggressive but I still do believe in Mayfield being a solid D-man in the near future. A top 4? no, but a very solid 5/6. He is getting better and on this team he is playing a lot better than a bunch of other guys on our defense (boychuk, Leddy, Pelech, Hickey... ). If this team could somehow pry away a Legit top D-man from one of these teams trying to shed salary it would be a world of difference.

I don’t have an issue with mayfield I thought his contract was ridiculous albeit a small number but with a long term. Snow’s MO. Who knows maybe it’ll turn out to be a steal? Just busting chiefs chops.

Can’t understand what happened to Leddy his play is abysmal for going on two seasons now. Was really thinking Trotz would have a positive effect on him.

I know I'm late to the party with this, but I'm really starting to have some Hickey hate.

He's the one I've been yelling at the most, when I yell at the TV. He can't seem to break free of the Cappy "activate" mode and he's too slow to recover. He should be benched.

Mayfield is the least of my concerns on D. As a bottom-pair defenseman, he's fine...gives the D an element it's mostly missing with his size and toughness, gets involved offensively, and holds his own in the D zone. You just have to price in the lack of quickness and the occasional unforced bonehead play with him, but...that's why he's a bottom-pair d-man.

The fact that there are no top-pair d-men on the team is a much bigger issue.

Hickey should not have been brought back and especially not for 4 years when the Isles have options in Bridge and Dobson and Wilde in the near future.

As you know I’m not big on the Hickey contract or Hickey for that matter but Dobson and Wilde are huge unknowns. I’m more concerned with guys in Bridgeport that may be able to contribute now which was my main issue with hickeys contract. I would much rather sit a vet to give these guys some playing time at this level while getting their feet wet and see what they have IF we’re potentially trading someone on our blue line.

I agree Cpt. I figure you already have Pelech and Mayfield and you have Toews why bring back Hickey even if Dobson and Wilde are not ready? You are better off going with a vet for a year than Hickey for 4. I think this needs to be a year you look at as many young players as possible and especially when you lose JT. Hickey is not the future.

I get wanting defensive depth for obvious reasons but I think if Hickey or his agent demanded four years (if they did) you say it was nice talking to you I wish you the best. One of many reasons it’s neccesary to give these guys playing time. Have to see what you have and figure out whether signing a player like Hickey to a four year contract (I get that happened in the offseason more a generalized comment) is a sensible move OR can we make a trade with a player like Leddy if a good opportunity arises. We haven’t had any injuries so I guess Lou doesn’t see the need to insert any kids yet. Maybe he’s not even thinking trade so it’s not as paramount who knows with Uncle Lou? Guy is like a clam.

hickey is brutal. continually caught with a bad pinch, can't cover a man in his own end and turns the puck over regularly. He's still a plus because all the goals he's on the ice for are on the pk where he doesn't get a minus.

disgustingly bad, to the point where if he wasn't playing they'd be better off.

He is just not big enough to be a solid D-man. He can skate and has some offensive ability but in D-zone he is a huge liability. He also continues to make Cappy mistakes. Watching him waive at the puck and a dumb pinch at both Blue lines every game is just painful. I really don't think he is going to be on this team very long. Hopefully Lou trades him and his awesome "corsi" to some stats nerd GM for a pick.
