The first name I thought of when you posted this; Jordan Staal. Honestly, I would take him on our team in a second. It would be tough to pry him out but I would not hesitate for the chance to get him in our lineup.

Shutdown kind of guy, sandpaper to his game. Similar Situation as Hodgson. Lindy likes to balance out ice time so I'm sure these guys would not be buried.

Staal/Hodgson/Ennis as your centers(not in that order) and if you somehow grab Parise in the offseason...Sure hes not Elite talent but that center depth is very Boston-like. Potential to still have dangerous lines no matter who you put out there.
Of course the lines would change but, still...The potential.

Leino-Staal-Pominville (shutdown line)
Parise-Hodgson-Vanek
Foligno-Ennis-Stafford
