First call up should be Leblanc, and maybe Palushaj if it's for 3-4 games on an offensive line.
I disagree. He was a non-factor, true, but he didn't suck. His real problem is that NHLers, even borderline ones, have something going for them that keeps them in the NHL. Something that makes them useful.
Tom Pyatt was fast and thus was a good PKer. Bergeron has a terrific slapshot. Blunden is big and looks mean. Moen works hard, goes to dirty places and scores garbage goals. Darche has intangibles
Sadly for him Engqvist is extremely average. Give him just one quality (speed, good shot, better on ice vision, hitting ability, mean SOB face, anything) and he'd be a decent NHLer.
