and yet he still has 9 points in 22 games and +8. Sure he is having sheltered minutes compared to Weber and Suter, but he is doing everything you can possibly ask of that player as a rookie. This isn't the same situation as Blum who was sucking earlier this year. Personally, this does not send the right message to a guy like Ellis who has done absolutely nothing wrong.
I am sure people will be up in arms saying it is fore his development etc, but you have to ask yourself what does this do for his confidence and is this a good move for a team that is trying to win the division this year. Ellis is so young and has plenty of time to develop.
Personally, I think he is better served playing with the big club and learn as much as he can from Weber and Suter because I am not so sure those guys are sticking around next year.
If they really sent him down so he could play two extra games, I will be pretty disappointed. I see no real difference in physical ability between Frankie and Ellis.
