Yeah alright. Maybe he can put things back together.

This is a pretty good article on Ennis' career, particularily the effect injuries have had on him the past few seasons:

Im partial to this signing because his surname is the closest one to mine in the NHL games, so Id often use it for my be a pro.

Interesting value opportunity. If he can recover at all, he'll be a huge bargain.

100%

Ennis could be useful as a PP option taking Bozak's spot.

Ennis used to play centre as well when he was a Sabre, so this could be a back-up plan for the 4C spot too if Lindholm has a rough camp.

Maybe although he probably got moved out of that spot in part because he's not much for face-offs.

Yeah I was just checking those stats, "not much" is putting it pretty kindly.

PP time really? We have plenty of firepower for the PP.

This signing also means that Marner isn't the smallest guy on the team anymore.

Well, I think it's fair to say that 5 of the 8 spots are no brainers. Then you'd ideally like to see Marleau, Kapanen and Johnsson all get some time as well.

But it shouldn't be set in stone and over the course of a long season you'd like to have options.
