Funk: I don't disagree with you on Engo. In fact value-wise he's one of the more important players we have, because he has something in his game that even Orpik doesn't have and that's some face-to-face nasty. Every team needs a couple guys like that, without them being goons. Engo turned out to be a real steal for what he brings.

As for the others, we'd all like to see Martin go but in most draft years there would be at least as good a chance that two of Niskanen, Strait and Bortuzzo would go at or before the draft for picks. The question is, with this year's class supposedly being pretty weak on all fronts (other than goalies maybe), would Shero find any use in trading those guys for picks vs. trading them for other prospects or picks next year if the scouts like what they see in the next crop. I suppose we might also get a decent roster player for some combination but that seems unlikely.
