The thing with Bickell is that, at times, he lacks motivation and doesn't move his feet, and therefore his size becomes useless. If Bickell were to start moving his feet more consistently, he could easily be a 25-30 goal scorer.
Not gonna happen. Ward is also extremely strong on his skates and an excellent defensive forward.
HUGE pass on Bickell. Let someone else overpay for him. He is playing with Hossa and Toews.
Glorified grinder who will be overpaid.
