Ruff " Its a little bit of a gamble but we all liked what we saw"

Ruff was on Hockey Hotline today talking about various topics. The quote in the thread title was about Ennis taking over Roy's minutes.

- The plan is for Ennis to take over Roy's role as the top minutes, all situations center.

Ruff also touched on

-Loves how Foligno opened up space for Ennis and Stafford. They were a great compliment of skills as a line. He also wants what Foligno brings on every line and feels thats a formula for success. Unrealistic to expect the same level of production from Marcus but they're hoping for something close.

-Hopes to keep to Hodgson's ice time in the 16-17mins range

-then said -> "Where we fit in Ott in that whole thing is going to determine some of the other guys ice time".

Sounds like Ruff hasn't decided if Ott will be a center or wing yet.

- They felt Ennis took great strides as a center, even though its a little bit of a gamble (taking over Roy's role), but they all liked what they saw in Ennis at center.

I have to say I'm a bit surprised they are handing over the top line to two kids and Stafford. I'm excited and nervous about it.
