Didn't we go through this whole goaltender "debate" a couple years ago, when "Leighton deserves to start!" turned into what anyone with half a brain knew it would?
I could only laugh at anyone who considers these two situations to be analogous.
I was the one who started the thread to have Ellis start the home opener and got ridiculed by many. (and I wasn't even calling for him to become the "#1")
While I feel Ellis needs to get more starts than any backup for us since Ward became the starter - I think you have to give Ward the opportunity on Monday. However, the leash should be very short and if he struggles at all give Ellis the start on Friday.
that seems reasonable as Ward does tend to play well against Bruins
