Now he's playing despite huge improvement from Blum and despite the threat of burning a year of his ELC.

In my opinion, "the rocketship" is being showcased.

I know we can take it with a grain of salt, but out of Trotz's mouth came the words "send me the guy playing the best" when he found out Weber was hurt. I don't 100 percent disagree with you that he is being showcased, but my gut says it is Blum who will go since his game mirrors a guy I think we will ink up in a few weeks-Suter. Ellis is a dynamic talent, and the only way he goes is if we get Parise, Perry, or Iginla.
