Bickel is the worst defenseman to suit up for this team in my 12 years of watching the Rangers.
So wrong. First off, Bickel is a young guy, and he will make mistakes. I'd rather have that from a young guy learning the game than an old guy who should know this stuff already. Christ, youre going to tell me he is worse than Redden? Worse than Backman? Did you ever see Ulanov? Do you recall Kevin Hatcher as a Ranger? Dave Karpa? Bruce Driver? Purinton? Poti? The list of bad Dmen for this team is so long its laughable, and it's unfair to tab a young guy like this with a tag like that.
