The playoffs are a different beast then the regular season . I think we have to keep Bickel around for some very important games versus the more physical teams between now and year end . If we lose Woywitka along the way...so be it...it happens and he helped get us over a hurdle which was all he was intended for . Bickel was brought into this organization for a purpose...nastiness !!! Well , we want him for those games and also to ride shotgun for Staal while he gets his game back up to speed .
If worse came to worse we could dress an extra Dman for some games if we think we might need Bickel for a couple of bouts or whatever . I can't see why we can't sit out a Mitchell or Feds and give their icetime to a few more guys like Hagelin/Richards/Dubi/Boyle or others . I'm sure the forwards could live with the extra ice unless we get into a bunch of BB games .
It's just a thought to get ice for 7 guys on the Blueline and not rush Staal whatsoever ...what do you guys think ???
