You cannot seriously believe either Hodgeson, or Staal, would be happy playing on a diminished talent line in the "1c" as you call it (although it's still the 3rd line, no matter what how you try and spin it), role and be happy coming to Buffalo, do you?

If that is the case,

The reality is both Hodgson and Staal want line 1 or 2 role's, not a 1c role, where they've already played.
The problem is you're considering Hodgson and Ennis to be top 2 centers. They aren't. You can make the claim that Hodgson is a second line center, which is fine, but Ennis isn't a top line center, at least not yet. Going into the season thinking he's going to be a top line center is just a huge mistake. The team needs an actual top line center next season, and neither Hodgson or Ennis is it.
