I'd love to know who Rayzor thinks will replace Bilcke's personality and value. You don't just remove a 6'2 210lb power forward who will defend teammates and put up a few points, without replacing him. I know the game has gone the way of the all-around player, but you still (generally) need that protection, like it or not.
IMHO There still is a place for Bilcke in the lineup. That being said the 4th line is where he should find himself. Fighting has yet to go the way of the Dodo bird.(it got the Leafs into the playoffs) but as the season progresses the tough guys see less and less ice time for good reason.
If the Spits do go to a youth movement they will need some toughness to help the kids get some room. Only thing I see with Bilcke is that if Rychel goes somewhere I can see a few of his circle of friends heading out with him and Bilcke is one of them.
