Well said Slake man. You are the sanest one on these boards. Another reason the Preds didn't let Ellis go at the trade deadline may be because Rinne is not a proven playoff goalie. Ellis has proven that twice over now. It didn't matter how many games Ellis won this season, the Preds were in a rush to prove that they can draft a goalie and they are willing to bet the playoffs on this kid(If they get there). I hope it works for Rinne's sake. Just a thought - how much loving do you think Rinne will get when Chet Pickard shows up in camp? Will Poile want to prove to the hockey world that he can now a draft first round tender? This all kind of takes your mind off the fact that the Preds never did trade/sign that top six forward...That's hockey politics for you boys and girls.
