He's only 10 months older than Sauer who played 2 full seasons in the A, 71 and 64 games and one partial season 42, 177 total.
He isn't top 6, but not for lack of development opportunity. Bickel played less in the A because he spent time in the ECHL. He also didn't only spend time in the Rangers organization.
The comparable to Sauers development isn't really apt IMO. Sauer broke into the NHL at 23. Probably would've done it earlier had he not had injury issues when he was 22.
