Ennis' relative Corsi rating is 18.5 while Hodgson's is 5.4, Hodgson is taking 1.3 penalties per 60 minutes compared to 0.3 for Ennis, and Hodgson has been on the ice for 5.11 GA per 60 minutes compared to 2.57 for Ennis.
Ennis plays against significantly higher quality of opponents and starts in the defensive zone far more than Hodgson. Despite this, he finishes in the offensive zone far more than Hodgson.
Ennis has won 32 out of 60 face-offs in the defensive zone, while Hodgson has won 33 of 79.
So yeah, you can't prove something that is inherently unprovable, but it hasn't been anywhere near close.
