I like Stalberg over Bickell. I think Bickell is easier to replace. It's tough to say who I would like better because it would depend on the size of the contract.

I believe it was mentioned above, it's too dangerous to write big contracts on 3rd and 4th line players. They are essentially role players and are among the easiest to find a cost-effective replacement for.

Both are likely to see a ridiculous offer from somewhere if they hit the market. I hope Stalberg's demands are more reasonable and they keep him. I think Bickell has been more valuable this year, but I'm still skeptical that he could maintain a similar level of play year over year compared to Stalberg.

I think Bowman has to keep one of them, it will be interesting to see what happens.
