You could replace Bickel with Mashinter and lose nothing in terms of grit. And you may end up with a better player.
If you're looking for equal grit from a defenseman, then yeah, I guess Bickel is it. That's until McIlrath comes up, but who knows when that is.
I still don't understand why the Rangers keep Eminger around if Torts doesn't like him. I've always advocated for Bickel, but at the same time felt Eminger was a better player. If we need someone to play six minutes of defense each night it should be him.
It's just pain.
