Rangers risk losing Bickel on waivers if they send him down. To some that might be no big deal but Bickel has come in very handy in the nastier games that have come our way since he was called up. I'd keep him around if only as a spare---however I'm not convinced that Wolski is going to waltz right back into our lineup--Fedetenko or no Fedetenko. His lack of grit along with average at best defense and inconsistent offense has not so far made him a good fit on this team. Personally I'd prefer Avery over him (wherever Sean is--injured? sent home?) and John Mitchell as well.
Here's the other thing--trade deadline coming up in two weeks. Doesn't mean we'll be able to dump WW on another team but we might pick up another forward anyway.
I expect after his condition assignment Rangers are going to make Woywitka's trip to Hartford official--or permanent as long as no one else gets hurt.
