There's a reason that Ellerby gets the least amount of minutes on defense and it's because he doesn't earn more. I was sitting by the glass when he layed out Lucic but other than that he did nothing. If he wasn't a 1st round pick he'd probably get a little more slack but he's quickly turning out to be a bust. Personally knowing him I want him to succeed and want him to have a full time NHL gig but it's just not going to happen.

As for Plante vs Markstrom.. we'll wait and see. Some goalies take time to develop and really prove themselves. Plante has struggled with injuries in previous seasons and never really had a chance to show what he's capable of. Markstrom still needs to "learn" the North American game.

Someone a few posts back said "and now the Panthers blow the lead" or something like that and they almost did.. but Plante saved the game and secured the win.

If Gudbranson keeps playing like he did at least tonight the Panthers are going to have some tough decisions to make.

David Booth looked awesome out there.. same with Frolik and Wideman as well.
