Even if we count this year as an accrued season, the earliest he can become UFA (going strictly by accrued seasons) is also in 2018, so there is no benefit in burning this year.
In other words he will reach the age threshold before the accrued seasons threshold.
No offense taken. Thanks for the info.
The only other reason to hold Ellis out is to see how our D looks without him. If we are going to trade for a top forward, then he may need to be part of the trade.
