But, I think we could have beaten it. Ellis + 1st + Linback. I'd take JJ over Ellis right now, but Ellis in the future. Columbus needs goalie help too.
Ellis is still a bit of an unknown asset, and plays sheltered minutes. Johnson can be penciled in to the top 2 pairings right now, and is young enough to build around going forward. I don't think the same can be said of Ellis. For what it's worth, Jonathan Bernier, who is basically LA's Lindback (with a fair bit more hype), was a piece that Columbus wasn't interested in.
