As we near the half way point of the season, what is your assessment of the Pens blueline? Can this club compete in the post season as is on the back side?

Orpik-Like a box of chocalates. You dont know what you are getting on a nightly basis. I expect a bit more leadership as well.
Martin-The only solid Dman this season. Hats off to him.
Letang-Has played his best when paired with Despres. I guess he doesn't want to leave the kid out to dry, otherwise runs around like a headless chicken. DB, please put them back together again.
Nisky- Looks like a top four at times, other times looks like he's back in Dallas.
Despres- Relegated to sampling nachos in the press box. Dont understand why your top young Dman sits most nights. The kid has a blend of speed, skill and is developing a physical game.
Engelland- Sixth D at best. I like what he brings. 12/14 minutes and the toughness factor. Rides the pine in playoffs.
Bortuzzo- Physical, decent foot speed, poor balance. Has a ways to go in his development.

They need to upgrade by April 3rd. Forget the winger, this team scores enough.

Quite simple actually. Do you go to the post season as is, or do you upgrade?
