From what I've seen over the years - very good skater for his size, will throw his body around, has the ability to chip in offensively on occasion.
Not true.

A lot of Panthers fans appreciated what Ellerby brought, but he's been given every opportunity under the sun here in Florida. We saw his time dwindling as a Panther and we know how Tallon loves his draft picks. His days were numbered. Especially since Tyson Strachan passed him on the depth chart. We also have Colby Robak and Alex Petrovic down in the minors.
