Bickel had nine minutes in penalties last night. John Tortorella said on the post game show on MSG that he didn't mind the double minor that Bickel was awarded because he felt like it could have gone to either player. Torts also said that he didn't want Bickel to dial back his intensity on the ice.
I like Bickel. He has some nice snarl in his game and defends his teammates. Maybe Bickel can establish himself to be a depth player with the Rangers this season and then be a 6/7 for them next season.
