Because he's still green... he didn't stay with the Rangers because he was being physically dominated in the NHL. He's going to be a great 2nd pair D at some point in the future, but not for another few years. Tortorella has a young enough defense corps right now. He's not going to swap out Bickel for any player besides Eminger at this point. This is not the time to throw a weak and raw defenseman into the fire.

Bickel needs to come out and Emminger has to be our 6th Defenseman. Plain and Simple......

No Erixon at this time of the year......

To the OP: Did you get a chance to watch Erixon in Hartford during the AHL playoffs? How did he look? Also, how has he looked on the ice in practice with the Rangers since being called up to the taxi squad? Better than Bickel or Del Zotto?

because if he were to be thrown into a game 6 of the ECF he'd get destroyed. That's why. I love how people would rather take someone with almost 0 NHL experience and put him in on defense in the middle of the ECF. These fans always go by the grass is always greener mentality and with Kreider coming in and looking good, they think that any player thrown into the lineup will look better than what's already there.

I agree. Eminger needs to play over Bickel.

Erixon should be around to practice but that's about it. He needs a full off-season to train. No need to throw a young talented kid to the wolves.

You mean the same Del Zotto that only had 2 bad games and is second in defensive scoring for the team. That Del Zotto?

Honestly at this point who really cares? Bickel/Eminger/Ericon won't play more than 5 minutes in a game it's really not that big of an impact on the game. I don't blame Bickel for the first goal, Step got high sticked and lost his man, Bickel had no idea.
