If Hodgson doesn't become a reliable 60 pnt player with leadership ability then his defensive struggles will make him a liability. If Grigorenko develops properly I'd consider moving Hodgson for a better 2 way player and tbh Im hoping Girgensons develops into a 2 way #2 option, it would be a better roster that way.
Wait, if he's competing with Ennis for the #2 center spot, who the hell's the #1 center? Hodgson is the #1 center until a guy like Grigorenko shows he can be.

The more centers who make the team and play well (e.g. Grigorenko, Girgensons), the less likely we ever see Ennis at center again barring injury, imo. I think coach made it clear in his decisions that he prefers Ennis at wing and Ennis is a much more effective defensive player in that position, nevermind that he is the worst faceoff man on a team full of bad-to-average faceoff men.
