What an asinine post. Zanon is a role playing third pairing defenseman, and letting him walk in favor of a more cost-effective veteran, or a younger, more talented prospect who could benefit from NHL ice time will only help the organization.
Furthermore, Ellis isn't a free agent, so we won't be "letting him walk." If he leaves, it is the result of a trade that, I would suspect, gives us an offensive threat in return. Plus the entire organization has been high on Rinne since the end of the lockout, so they're not going to up and trade him now that he's finally taking up the mantle of starting goaltender as the club has been waiting for him to do.
I can't help but think that you've wandered into the wrong forum. Perhaps you meant to go to Tampa Bay or Toronto?
