There is toughness as in being gritty and then there is toughness as in toughness. Bickel is tough. We always complain about no one moving bodies from the crease and bemoan not having a real crease clearer sind Beuk, but then a player (note: I am not annoiting him the next Beuk) comes along in that mold and we can't wait to get rid of him, in favor of more "skill". Girardi, MDZ, McDonagh, Staal, these are all playes with skill. And all are easily capable of moving the puck. Bickel adds a dimension that the others do not have.
