I agree with pretty much all of this. The reason Bickel still has a job here is because he punches face. Sather and the Rangers have always made it a point to have a tough team. See: Brashear, Boogaard, Rupp etc. signings. Plain and simple Bickel smashes dudes and I think if it weren't for that he still wouldn't be here. What I don't understand is why Torts doesn't manage him better. Bickel should never see the ice surface against Pitt or other quick, offensively gifted teams (the **** was he dressed for the TB game last night?). Use him against PHI, NJ and BOS on the 4th line and I don't have a problem with him.
