Bickel on the other hand is a bit mind-boggling to me. He has been bad this year. I can't imagine any scenario where I'd play Bickel over Eminger. What does he do that Eminger can't? He fights? I'd rather have Eminger playing ten or twelve minutes of competent defense than Bickel playing four minutes and sitting in the box for five.
I think Torts and Sullivan want to keep Bickel around to work with him. I think the organization may see him as a future Strudwick and don't want to lose him for nothing.
