I would much rather hang on to Deryk this season and see if another strong season - hopefully seasoned with some playoff success - could not hike his value significantly.

We have lots of prospects to take over, but they are prospects and while some of them should get more than a cup of coffee this season, it is too risky dealing Engelland now, also because he is (as has been mentioned) one of our very few tough guys on D and we need to get tougher rather than more soff.

If - say - Bortuzzo and Despres solidify claims as starters this season, dealing Engelland one year before he is UFA would be the right time to maximize value for us considering that he is a strong 4-6 D-man with a dreamy cap-hit.
