The Rangers defense corps is consodered to be one of the best and deepest units in the entire National Hockey League. When training camp opens next week rugged Stu Bickel will be looking to secure a spot on the Blueshirts blueline--two years after he established himself as an NHL player, and one year after he was in the Top Six on opening night, but finished the season down in Hartford with an injured wrist.

On Friday Jim Cerny of BlueshirtsUnited.com sat down with Bickel to discuss the strange up-and-down 2013 season, his approach heading into this year's training camp under a new coaching regime, what he did this past off-season, and what it's like to actually score again Henrik Lundqvist---even if it's just as part of a pre-camp informal scrimmage.

Watch and enjoy this one-on-one with Stu Bickel, then share your comments below.
