however, there's no reason he should not have been penciled in as a 3rd pairing guy last year or (certainly not) this year, especially given the guys we're throwing out there now.

I'm not thrilled with the Ellerby dump, but the odd timing of it makes me suspect that there is more to the story.

As we've often mentioned in our frequent entanglements over the years, there are things that go on in the locker room that we are not aware of.

The fact that Ellerby was treated similarly under two head coaches who have quite dissimilar styles suggests to me that there is something about the situation that we are not aware of.
