Our breakouts are much better, which is why we're getting odd man rushes, and forechecking much better (not to mention the penalty kill is tne times better, though the power play still mostly sucks due to overpassing). That is to say, we're looking like a contending team, not an old slow pug team. So no, I don't want to see Bickel, even if he kicks the living s**t out of Lucic.
I think we need to tak into account that this big asset performed only against the Isles and the TB awful D and Garon.

Just for some perspective.
