And even after the draft, Regier still said his number 1 priority going into the season would be to add another center. So what do you know that i don't. That doesn't seem like a team happy with their centers. What need hole did Hodgson actually fill for the Sabres? What you are really forgetting is the timeline. Ennis was on the wing when the Sabres made the deal. What they thought they were getting in Hodgson, they didn't know they already had in Ennis (plus some.) It was a bad trade.
Disagree for a lot of reasons, which mostly have been touched on already.

The idea of writing off Hodgson at the end of his rookie season is asinine, though. He played a really solid game most nights, and the fact is he had, what, 2 practices with the team in the first 20 days of being a Sabre? I'm willing to give him another look and not worry about whether or not Zeke ever puts it all together.
