Would you still do the Hodgson trade?

It's not the worst problem in the world, but the way it fell, Hodgson looks like the odd man to me.
I guess it depends what you value in "upside"
I think if both Ennis and Hodgson reached their ceiling in potential, then Hodgson is vastly more valuable.
Hodgson reaching his potential is a Parise type of all around star player
Ennis reaching his potential is an offensive spark plug Briere type of impact player.
