Stralman played very well for a while but has been struggling.

This is not just a matter of who can skate, pass or shoot best. There's more factoring into this than just a skills competition. Bickel plays a hard game and tends to make safe plays. He plays within his ability. It's not spectacular but for a No. 6 d-man it's been better than okay.

Is Wellman really better than Mitchell?--If Wellman can't play in the top 6--then he's with Rupp, MZA and whoever too--which almost begs the question--how good is he at grinding? I haven't seen a whole lot of Wellman but I doubt he'd be better in Mitchell's spot.
