He had everything to do with the 2nd goal where he got his ankles broken by Joe Vitale, a guy with 5 career goals, and let him skate in untouched.

Bickel only had 5 less minutes than McDonagh in that game.

People are trying are trying to make the problem everything but Stu Bickel. He's a huge part of the problem and 6D is easily the biggest hole on the team.

This idea of "oh he doesn't play that many minutes, so it's ok that he's one of the worst players in the league" is ridiculous. Poor play isn't just excused nor does it have less of an effect on the result of the game because you play less minutes. It just doesn't work that way.
