Not surprising. Probably plan B if they didn't get Carkner.

2 years 750k per

Staals Eye 07-01-2012 12:14 PM

NHLN syas 750k

McDonagh27 07-01-2012 12:14 PM

Good deal @ 750k per. He's probably a #7 d-man at best, but good depth to have.

Ave Maria 07-01-2012 12:14 PM

good depth move I guess

Fitzy 07-01-2012 12:15 PM

Excellent terms for a 7th defenseman. Safety net at defense for a minimal cap hit.

Kreider Typical 07-01-2012 12:15 PM

price is good. i'm happy with this. he's not the best option out there, but at 750k he's a good 7/8 and he's an acceptable 6th if we're desperate

Mr Atoz* 07-01-2012 12:16 PM

Fine with me but if you're going to pay him don't sit him on the bench for 58 minutes a game.

Jabroni 07-01-2012 12:16 PM

Good signing.

Vitto79 07-01-2012 12:16 PM

not sure why they did two yrs but whatever. Its cheap and he's the last spot on the roster to fight Jersey and Philly:laugh:

Should be the 7th defenseman. Can't be playing him every game.

RangerBoy 07-01-2012 12:17 PM

Torts likes him. He didn't play him very much in the playoffs because he didn't trust him. Maybe that changes with a little more experience. Bicks is a righty which is very hard to find. He play D and wing. Cheap price. Bicks got a 1 way deal. Good for him.

GregSirico 07-01-2012 12:18 PM

Torts likes him, gives us depth ... 750k is not bad for a 7/8 D man.

TomLaidlaw 07-01-2012 12:19 PM

Solid 6/7th D-Man for a long NHL season who will stick up for his teammates.

I like the way Bickel fights. Reminds me of the 1980's. He doesn't hold on and hug people. He opens up and tries to put his fist through his opponents skull.

Machinehead 07-01-2012 12:20 PM

I wouldn't mind keeping him around as a hitman rather than wasting money on one in the market. He's a good fighter. I think 4th line muscle is a better role for him than defense.

pld459666 07-01-2012 12:20 PM

like it. Solid and versatile. Will get better on D and a good guy to have on the team as a roving forward/defenceman.

nice.

Not sure if serious...

Anyway, good depth signing. He was a passable #6 for us last season.

And this.

$750K is a very good number for his role.

I'm not saying play him every game. I'm saying don't dress him and leave him on the bench. There's a difference.
