Remind me...how old was Deryk Engelland when he got his chance with the Pens???
I would LOVE to have him on the team right now. What a find by Shero and GMGM let another tough viable player slip right under his nose.
Funny thing is that this situation reminds me ALOT of the flak GMGM got when he brought Erskine aboard.
I remember being IRATE that he was not immediately put into the lineup (took about 20 games I think) before he saw his first action vs the Canes. We lost that game but he delivered a couple crushing hits and eventually the chatter settled somewhat.
Most people back then = Excited by Pothier signing
Most people back then = Not happy with GMGM getting Erskine
I'd say about 80-90% of the Caps HF fanbase just doesn't get "toughness". They TALK like they understand and desire it but their views go contrary to that. They never have understood outside of a few people...Ridley, RH, Choke etc
