I don't mind having one of Hodgson or Ennis catch easier competition on a given night. If they role with what they have, Vanek-Hodgson-Tropp gives them a strong low-cycle game and in-tight finish. Foligno-Ennis-Stafford gives them some of that but a lot of transition game chances. XXXX-Staal-Pominville would be an interesting duo and if the XXXX is Leino, a lot of puck possession to go along with very good defense out of 2/3rds of that line. Pominville seems like the ideal winger for someone like Staal -- they can go out and play a simple, sound game and put up more points than their checking assignment.
