Poile is "making our bed" with 2nd-tier guys.
How would not signing Ellis necessarily make thing worse? While I think we should sign him, he's still unproven. For all we know last year could've been a total fluke.
I think you seriously underestimate Hornqvist and Pihlstrom. Hornqvist has a laser shot and Pihlstrom is not afraid to stick his nose in the other team's business, much like Tootoo does (though he fights less and scores more). Our defense is VERY talented and with the addition of Pihlstrom and Hornqvist or a veteran forward, we'll have three really solid lines and a decent fourth line. The only question mark will be goaltending, primarily if Ellis or Rinne can handle the physical demands of a full season as the #1 goaltender.
