Waive leino and gerbe. Save another 5 mill and wont count vs the cap. Stupid ass moves man i tell you. Id rather have ellis with mcormick and kaleta most games as the 4th line.
I agree with Justin. Singling out Ellis here is a poor decision. He's not a goal scorer, and has never been presented as one. He's a depth guy that, while he doesn't add offense, he rarely hurts you in your own end. That's more than could be said for many of our other forwards, and sadly many of our defencemen.
You hear that same phrase from everyone one of our defensemen, Ennis, Stafford, and many others too. Singling out Ellis is a poor argument.
It's not about point production for Ellis. He is a very important part of the locker room, the players and coaches respect him. If he clears waivers and plays in Rochester, he will make an immediate impact.
lulz if work ethic doesn't translate on the ice that is a moot point. I swore I heard when ellis was on the ice by the announcer "And ellis looses the puck along the boards"
