Hodgson and Ennis are our 1/2 centers. You can take that to the bank, it's common sense.
Ennis isn't going to the #3 center spot, neither is Hodgson.
Grigorenko is most likely the 3rd line center, they aren't sending the kid back to juniors, he would gain nothing from it.
they'd probably wanna break grigs in at wing. And if he goes back to juniors, he can still work on his game-roy mentioned he was probably ready talent wise, but could improve his conditioning and strength. If we had a stronger top 6, i'd be more ok with putting grigs in rather quickly, like boston did with seguin. Given our situation though (2 unproven centers, questions of how leino will produce in the top 6) i'd prefer give him a bit more time than rush him and harm his development a la tim connolly. I do think he'll get a 9 game tryout though, and if he pulls a myers and sticks, that's awesome too.
