Reese (?)

The only reason why I say trade Engelland is because he is a solid #6 defenseman and shouldn't be #7. Despres has looked solid next to Letang and Bylsma seems to like the idea of that pair. Orpik and Martin is the shutdown pair, and the Dumoulin-Bortuzzo pair is a big 3rd pair that can skate, move the puck and play solid defensively.

We can get picks or package them for a complimentary winger.
I'd keep Engo as number 7. He's cheap and effective with likely relatively little trade value. No reason to trade him imo
