Now for those who are almost entirely blaming Bickel on our 0-2 start

For those who think Bickel's bad play isn't at all responsible for our 0-2 start

The team as a whole has just sucked (hence why we are 0-2). Bickel has just been a notch worse.
It's typical behavior of this board. Single out the guy who is perceived to be the weak link, and start directing the frustration at him.

Hell, half of the people who are harping on him for the Kennedy goal can't even remember how the play developed. Vitale blew by Bickel because he misread his gap and thought he could close him out on the wall. Hank made the initial stop and it should have ended there. However, between Kreider being slow on the backcheck and Del Zotto standing around in front of the net not covering anyone, Kennedy had an easy look at the net. That play was a **** show all the way around.

Seems like few people around here can analyze a hockey play anymore. It's kind of alarming.
