With only 12 forwards in camp and Arron Asham suspended for the first game this season, the question has been, who the heck will be the 12th forward when the puck drops on the Rangers 2013 season in Boston?
Well, Jim Cerny at nyrangers.com reports that Stu Bickel is currently slated to fill that position. H/T to Dave at the Blue Seat Blogs for asking.
...with Saturday expected to be a physical affair, it makes sense to replace Asham's toughness at forward with Bickel. Plus, giving Bickel just two minutes of ice time hurts a lot less at forward than on defense. Assume that means Eminger slides into the 6th spot on defense as he brings more "bite" than Gilroy.
