But, I think Ennis is a better scoring type of player. He does a pretty good job of putting the puck in the net. He's also slightly better defensively.

Hodgy has improved to the point where he's better at the dot and has a decent shot that can find the twine, but I think he's much more creative with the puck.

To use a basketball analogy, Hodgy is more like John Stockton while Ennis is more like Derrick Rose. Maybe not in the caliber of their play, but style.

Hodgy facilitates better. Ennis scores better. Neither are bad either way.

And to me, that's why you keep Hodgy. To facilitate to Vanek/Pominville.
ROR can produce points but is also better defensively than both of them.

Grigorenko has the potential to be a big time scorer that could very well be better than Ennis.

And if we can somehow keep Girgensons, we can move him to a wing to play along side Grigs OR O'Reilly.

That's my reasoning. *shrug*
Ok, I can run with that. The issue I have is that some want to trade Ennis + a major prospect, while not willing to move CoHo straight up. Horrible use of assets when values are very similar.
