I do not think it is so cut and dry. The one who is playing the best gets to be the #6defenseman. Bickel has not only not done a thing that warrants a seat on the bench, he has actually managed to open an eye or two.
Not sure that I agree that eminger was that much better than either Stralman or Bickel. Or if he was, it was not noticiably so. Right now, when Sauer comes back, one of Stralman or Bickel is going to sit. When Eminger comes back, he needs for whomever is in teh lineup, to play his way out. Much like Wolski is waiting on Mitchell to do.
