He's not just pure offense... he's led his team in +/- every single year as well. He's quite a skilled defenseman and a great prospect. The only thing he lacks is the typical size you'd like in a defenseman. But as I said, Timonen hasn't exactly let lack of size slow him down and I doubt Ellis will either.

Btw, you should watch a video of his shot What a laser. If you added that deadly shot to our powerplay. Other teams would need .

We'd be incredibly lucky to add this kid to our team. And I think his unique skill-set would absolutely flourish in the system we run. He's everything we always hoped Matt Carle could be both offensively and defensively.
