We have lots of contract spots going forward. We will have likely have added Schroeder, Sauve, Connauton, Rai, towards our 50 contract limit. But really, nothing to worry over.

Also, how did Ellington get 875K a year on his contract...? Did Nonis sign him to this amount out of pity?
No, Gillis signed him after consultation from Dave Gagner. It looks like a bad signing then and now. Moose fans say that he looks lost when he was called up to Manitoba and it looks like he is having a bad season in Victoria so far. IMO, the signing was more of a sign of hope that he could turned his play around because the defense cupboard was vaguely lacking in any prospects at the time.
