Ellerby has a long way to go before I will be comfortable with him playing 18mins a game for us on a regular basis. That said he is clearly an NHL caliber prospect who given time and brought along correctly should be a solid 4-6 dman for us.

His size and willingness to drop the gloves puts him ahead of Forbort and Muzzin in my book but I wouldn't want to over hype him based on his one game with the team. Lets see how he looks after 8 games as that appears to be the proper amount of time to measure a rookie's career prospects.

All kidding aside so far so good with Ellerby and with Muzzin too.


Oh and a fifth rounder for Ellerby was an absolute steal (over hyping him but it just clearly was).
