So I'm just asking, not criticizing your thoughts.
Mostly because he is a luxury and not a need. I repeat, a luxury not a need. What we need is a top scoring forward and a blue chip prospect. It isn't that i don't think he will succeed it is that he is not a NEED for our team. If you have a luxury like Ellis (whose stock will NEVER be higher) you need to trade for what you NEED.

I don't hate the kid as much as I see an opportunity to actually improve our team and get something we have been lacking for years. That to me is more important than the luxury of having ellis.
