If you Disagree... then tell me what Line was Thomas Vanek on, and what line was Jason Pominville on?
(Leino-Roy-Pommer and Vanek-Hodgson-Tropp were the other 2 lines)
What exactly are you basing this on?

Ennis averaged 18+min a night after that line was put together. Thats with no PK ice time and playing on the 2nd PP unit.

Whereas Hodgson averaged 17:30 with PK ice time and a good chunk of time on the top PP unit.

Vanek averaged 16:30 in ice time from that day forward and was one of our PP ice time leaders. For the season he averaged 1min more than Ennis on the PP.

Ennis definately didn't center our top line, that would be the Leino/Roy/Pommer line. But I thought it was understood that the Hodgson line was the 3rd line. They played slightly less than either of the other two lines.

++ Btw to those that say they would like a Hodgson/Vanek line to face the other teams top defenders. I hope you realize thats up to the other team.
