MCL is 20. I don't want to rush him, and ruin him. I'd rather he plays 1st pairing minutes in the A and learns how to defend.
But you are right. Nothing is worse than Stu Bickel.
That's the thing, though. I'd have no problem with him honing his D game in the AHL if he was playing like McD was before he got called up...but if he's not as good as Bickel right now I don't see him ever being good enough to be more than a 3rd pairing guy.
