I'm not sharing this to show that Ellis wins NHL games, rather just to say that he hasn't been detrimental to the organization playing limited minutes as a 12-15th forward.
I don't think Matt Ellis is detrimental at all, but the problem (this year especially) is we have too many Matt Ellis's - Ellis, McCormick, Scott (aside from fighting abilities), Gerbe (while he recovers from injury), Hecht (now that the years are showing) are all players that are hard workers but don't bring anything beyond that to the team, which in combination makes the team weaker imo.
