And eventually there will be injuries anyway, so both of them will play at some point in a long season (if Engqvist is really that close). Ryan Johnson at $550k is an insurance policy you can't really go wrong with.
If we sign Johnson, Engqvist will be on the team either way as Johnson is guaranteed to get hurt.
