Bickell seems like a guy Bergevin would have some interest in plus he's obviously familiar with him from when he worked in Chicago.

Obviously we'd like to add more size but I think Gionta has more value to us than on the trade block so I'd just let him finish his contract with us, if Galchenyuk looks comfortable at C and Kristo shows he can play in the NHL next year I'd hope we'd try shopping Desharnais.

The way Tinordi has played you've gotta think he's done with Hamilton, getting Emelin back will make our defense look very good.
Bickell wouldn't be a bad addition, but the price has to be right and he has to make it to UFA. Chicago will probably buy out Montador and Olesz so they have the cap space to keep him.

He is a guy that would provide size and physical play though he isn't a fighter(120 career PIMs). 3rd line guy who hits and chips in 10-15 goals and around 30 points. As a UFA he'll probably cost around 3 mil/year for 3-4 years.
