Seems highly unlikely. Ennis finally came into his own at the end of the season. Got Stafford scoring again and was partly responsible for Foligno looking like an All-Star. Hodgson is even more unlikely, imo, since we just acquired him. It's just bad business to flip players like that. He had 8 points in his last 10 games with Tropp and an injured Vanek; I think Buffalo gives him until the end of his RFA contract to prove his value. It's not like Pits would have much use for either of them on their 3rd line since, at this point, they're both purely offensive centers. My guess is they're gonna want either defense or wingers for Crosby/Malkin coming back.
