Ellis is a dynamic talent, and the only way he goes is if we get Parise, Perry, or Iginla.
Those were Trotz's words, which is why it came as a shock to every Admirals writer when it was Ellis that was called up.

Bear in mind, we were reportedly willing to swap Ellis for an 18 year old center that shocked even the team that picked him by making the squad out of camp. I'm not saying I think we'll trade him for Ray Whitney, but I could see him in a package for say, Bobby Ryan, easily.
