Gerbe is even smaller, but he's pretty good defensively.
Not Selke good, but I'd trust him on the ice with 40 secs left with a one-goal lead
Based on what? This seems so terribly arbitrary that it's almost not worth the debate.
We have seen Ennis in a winger's role defensively. We have no evidence that indicates Ennis will be incapable of learning the defensive side of the position, just as he is learning the offensive side of it.
Sorry, I'm just not as worried as some of you. If Ennis is a defensive liability, he won't be seeing the late game minutes that require defensive stalwarts. People are speaking in this thread as if Ennis will be firmly entrenched as our go-to guy even if he ends up being incapable. We have plenty of forwards who will be able to play in whatever situation(s). This is quite the backlash over something miniscule.
