from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun,
A lot of eyebrows were raised around the hockey world Tuesday when TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported the details of Engelland’s deal with the Flames, but the Calgary club’s GM, Treliving, pointed out there was lots of interest in the 32-year-old unrestricted free agent and the Saddledome-dwellers had loads of space under the salary cap.
“Is it is a high price? Some will say it’s a very high price,” Treliving said. “Based on our situation, based upon the flexibility we have, we felt it was a very fair price.
“Deryk is a guy who I think, in a lot of ways, has been under-appreciated and undervalued,” Treliving added about Engelland. “If you do the homework and do the research and talk to former players and talk to people in Pittsburgh about what kind of person Deryk is, you get the response that this guy was a big part of their locker-room.”
