If Ennis and Hodgson each put up 60 points, hooray, but if Ennis is back on the wing 10 games into the season and Hodgson is centering the third line, nobody is going to be shocked.

It's tiresome how people say we're better now based on the most optimistic projections for our unproven players.
We had one proven top 6 center coming off of a catastrophic injury, a rookie, an experiment and a career 4th liner. This year looks at least as good, and 1000x more promising. How could you possbibly think more of last years group than this years?
