They get the V-R-S type of "easy" minutes which will help drive their production offensively since they've both shown they can produce in that situation.
In this scenario, Staal gets first PK, first PP, and regular ES minutes, slotting in as likely top ToI guy. Ennis/Hodgson split 2/3 and one of them gets the nightly perk of catching teams third pairing. Staal has an expanded role, Hodgson has an expanded role.... win-win.
I feel this FACT, has been completely lost on the "ZOMG, Ennis is untouchable!!! He's going to score 80 bagillion points!!!! He's our #1 center!!!!" crowd...
