I agree and contrary to what some people say--Bickel is a decent skater for his size. He still needs some work but these potshots at him remind me of the potshots taken at Boyle after his first season with us. Boyle worked hard to improve areas he was weak at--Bickel just might do the same. Ridiculous to write a player off after his rookie season.

Eminger to me is an insurance policy. I expect the Rangers are going to try to upgrade their D sometime during the year and especially if Sauer can't come back. Rangers like Bickel's toughness and willingness. These are two key elements to players on the cusp.
