[Value of] Deryk Engelland

Recommended Posts

If Tanev doesn't re-sign how does Engelland sound?


-202 lbs

-plays the right side

-solid positionally

-Somewhat physical (70 hits last season)

-Great fighter

-solid shot blocker

-great 6/7 defenseman

-Can keep other teams tough guys honest (See Lucic)


Edler-Bieksa (don't really like this pairing but not many options)


Alberts-Engelland can be an extremely physical pairing that's hard to play against.

With Despres, Eaton, and Bortuzzo showing that they can be effective NHL defensemen, Engelland seems to be expendable to the Pens.

What will it take to get him?

Engelland is worth a b level prospect and 5th-7th round pick at his cap hit. He does everything on the ice and is solid defensively. And as for a pugilist, the guy will drop the mitts with anyone and usually win. Something we've not had since Rypien. Love to see him here. As for Niskanen...ya i'd seriously consider parting with a 2nd rounder and a decent forward prospect for him.
