I would love to see Haley at least get a shot here in Bickel's spot. The guy scored 15 goals last year for the Soundtigers. He might be a little on the small side, but he has speed, and the dude is a spark plug. Could be Avery-esque at the Garden.

The question is why not?

If he can handle Bickel, he should be replacing him in the lineup. At least for a look...
