I think that Ellerby's performance has been a little misleading. I think that in the past the combination of his youth and lack of playing time affected his performance. Last season when he got extended playing time due to injury to others he looked much better. I would not put it past him to become the top four defenseman that they thought they had when they drafted him. I think it would be a big mistake to give up on him right now especially since he is still 6'5 with speed. I'm willing to bet if he got extended playing time he will surprise people a lot.
