We still don't have great depth, i.e., Hagelin should not be playing on the 1st line (and Kreider doesn't look like he belongs there right now either), Boyle is more of a 3rd-4th line tweener than a legit 3rd liner, and Bickel should either be a healthy scratch on most nights or playing in the AHL. The Rangers need to get back to their hard, forechecking game that made them so successful last year and play smart, disciplined hockey. I didn't see much of that tonight.
Good point about Bickel. I still am baffled as to why he plays over Eminger. Steve E is your best option as a #6.

Bickel offers nothing but his fists. I don't think he even knows how to effectively use his size.
