Bobby Ryan would be a great pick up for sure, but I believe Ennis will be the better player in the long run.
Ennis might be a super talented player (can't disagree there) with a lot of upside, but projecting a 5'9" player that converted to center for 15 games as a No. 1 center in this league seems to be a stretch. He has 70-80 point talent, but will he reach that and will it be at wing or center if he does? Those are big questions at this point. Ennis played great down by the stretch, but it's a tiny sample size. If you can bring in a 2C and use Ennis as bait to land that first-line powerforward this team needs, you do it.
