He makes me think of bonk a lot, and no one would ever put Bonk on the 4th line. 4th lines are for guys that hit, skate, and drive you nuts. Engqvist is none of these things. With Eller and Desharnais more than capable and better suited as 3rd line centers, i think Engqvist is thus superfluous on the team.
Never thought of comparing Engqvist as a Bonk type player. Me think this is quite a valid point. Tends to show that we do not have any able roster body to fill the 4th line center spot adequately as I would agree that DD and Eller are more 3rd line material also.

DD can't be sent down, so it comes down to Eller versus Enqvist and....well...that is also a no brainer.
