He does a good job of stopping the first shot, but has bad rebound control and will leave a lot of pucks out there up for grabs. He's pretty good with the puck (obviously, since he came out of the Dallas system). He's really agile in goal, but also tends to bite on the first deke in 1v1 situations.
The big thing that keeps Ellis from being a starting goaltender is his consistency. He'll be dynamite for 20 games or so, and then he'll go for a stretch where he regularly gives up 3-5 goals per game. He's really competitive, though, so he always gets fired up come playoff time.
If you're looking for someone to split starts with Price while he develops, Ellis is your man. For anything else, you probably have better options. He's a great guy, though. You'll definitely want to follow his Twitter account.
