Dan Ellis - "I think it was stupid. Bottom line. It's the exact same thing as last year. So yeah I was frustrated. Absolutely. I can't stop both teams."

I know why Trotz did it and it worked out, but still.

It's going to be interesting to see what Trotzy does with Sully.
RollingPredFan, where did you find this quote from Ellis? Anyone else think we saw the end of the Ellis-as-starter era last night? Trotz said he was just trying to change the teams luck with the change (Rotoworld), but that was an awfully quick change.

I'm a BIG fan of Koisti's. It looked like the coaching staff must have told the D-men to start jumping the plays last night in an attempt to create some opportunities. I noticed Zanon and Klein pushing into the offensive zone several times as well last night. Koisti's worth having just because of his offensive awareness, and if the coaches tell their defensemen to sell out and take risks, the players can't be blamed if they get burned. I thought the Koisti - Klein pairing worked well. I also liked the first two lines last night; Trotz should keep those two lines in tact and let Sully work his way back in slowly.
