Maybe 'tip can clarify for me?

I also refuted the claim that made it seem as though Hodgson hasn't demonstrated the same leadership/clutch skills at the same point in his career.

I guess I'm confused as the why the original statement didn't read, "although Ennis and Briere have similar traits, it's a stretch to compare them, Briere was a 30 goal/90 pt player in Buffalo, Ennis isn't that player yet".

Wasn't Briere a leader and clutch too? Has Ennis demonstrated those skills any more consistently then Hodgson?

just seemed like a statement dripping in bias
I can't speak for Sabretip. Here's my position: I think the Briere-Ennis and Drury-Hodgson comparisons are valid. I took his argument as a break. Eg: slow down, he's not Drury yet. And I agreed. Though I do believe that if both develop, they'll be close comparisons.

For me, the comparisons aren't statistically based. It was style of play, role on the team. I'm all for the stats comparisons, though, and I didn't realize Hodgson and Drury were that close statistically.
