Anyway, Im happy that is not how guys that run the Sabres see it as Ennis is clearly ahead of Hodgson on the deep chart to me.
Order is irrelevant, they'll get rolled fairly equally anyways. What we can be fairly sure of is Foligno-Ennis-Stafford will be one line, and Vanek-Hodgson will be together on one line with either Pominville, Ott, or Tropp (outside chance maybe Gerbe or Grigorenko). I guess by convention most of us just list the line with Vanek first. It becomes a catch-22: if you list Foligno-Ennis-Stafford first, then "why is Vanek or Pommer your 2nd/3rd LW/RW?", esp since those two might very well be on different lines as well.

And it doesn't matter why Grigs fell...Couturier fell but he was still ready last year anyways. Most of us expect Grigorenko will get a shot in camp and perhaps 9 games before a decision is made on him.
