I think they're very similar. Strudwick became a Ranger after many years in the NHL, and so he had a little more savvy in his game to make the most of his limited role. Bickel is still learning.

I'd take Struds over Bickel as a fighter, though. I think Strudwick was better at tying up his opponent and sneaking in a timely blow. I love Bickel's courage, but he swings wildly & leaves himself open. It looks good, but it's not very efficient. If it was 5 years ago & the league was full of heavyweights, I'm sure he'd get hurt.
