I like him. It's difficult to describe but I think he has a future as a legit NHL top-6 D-man.

Agree? Disagree?
I agree, I think I posted something similar before. Sauer is a can skate much better, Bickel can fight much better but I do see similarities in their game. The skating is the difference in the NHL though. Sauer is a legit 2nd pairing defenseman. Don't see Bickel going beyond a #6 but an NHLer nonetheless.
