I think that Ellerby may be a good player to target as he is behind a lot of defencemen in Florida. Nonetheless, it will take more than Diaz to shake him free and I'm not very sure that the Panthers would be interested in Diaz in the first place.

Not only that, Ellerby does not seem to be much of a scrapper despite his 6'5" frame.
