I also agree that Ellis is quite capable of holding the fort for two months so it could be they won't trade for anyone.
It sounds like they may be looking more for AHL depth more than anything so Irving for a 6th would be good for both parties. It would finally give Irving some ice time and let people have a look at him before he becomes a free agent.
