I want Ellis in the lineup as much as the next guy. And I HATE Boullion and Klein as a pairing as I don't think either one can move the puck well at all, but I'll be da*ned fool to ignore the fact that Ryan has some (very) key missing elements to his defensive game that he needs to improve upon in order to play some heavier minutes of the NHL. If we have to give up a lil production from Ellis now in order to get A LOT of production from him in the future, I'm 100000% ok with it.
Klein does not go up against "Nash, Datsyuk, Lucic, and the Sedin's on a given night"
Unless he is caught on the ice after a change. If he did we would have lost more games than we have this year.
