You might be right about Lovejoy but not holding my breath. As for Engo, I can't see that being the case this year. Engo is the Craig Adams of Defenders out there plus he's the only legitimate fighter on the team. Borts had a real nice game (I thought that wheel-and-pass to Kunitz was pretty damn impressive for a rookie in terms of awareness of what was going on behind him) but let's let him rack up a couple dozen of those nice games (and a couple nice fights) before we pencil Engo out of the lineup. He's a solid bottom pairing guy and fills a real need we have.

If anything I could see Borts making Niskanen into trade bait. A team like EDM might pay a pretty nice price for Nisky + Prospect / pick.
