I answered this before and I'm even less sure of Engelland's value now than I was then. In the offseason, maybe. Now, probably not. Shero seems to want 10 D going into a playoff.

Also , how was Engelland playing lately ? Any reason why the Pens would get Murray to play over him ?
Engelland's been scratched a lot lately. Not really doing anything wrong, just too much depth.

Engelland and Murray don't play exactly the same game. They both fight and can blow people up, but that's about it. Murray's a strong shot blocker and PKer, Engelland is not. Engelland's a reasonable puck mover, Murray is not.

I think who would play when is gonna be a matter of matchups.
