If Hodgson, Grigorenko and Girgensons all work out, you have 3 very capable centers available for the top 3 lines. They still might want Ennis to slide back to wing long-term once they're all ready to go, which could be as early as next season.
His tenure at center is also very limited, so you're not working with a whole lot of data. His play at wing is way more established, so saying he's been the most successful there is flawed.
So basically you're using guess work and supposition to counter Ruff's actual comments.
How exactly does Hodgson get put with Girgs and Grigs developmentally? Coho is the same draft year as Ennis and has more NHL games as a center (91gms) than Ennis (about 20gms).
Its seems like you're the one more so than the Sabres that does't want Ennis at center long term. Or at least prefer the kids(Grigs and Girgs) or Hodgson to him.
