To reiterate, this is just blown out of proportion. Did you see Ellerby play? Mediocre player that made mistakes every game. Instead of keeping him around, trade him and try to get what you can in return. Specially since we have many more promising defensemen coming up (Robak, Petrovik, Brenan has been pretty solid so far, etc.)

You know who else was not drafted by Tallon? Markstrom, Kulikov, Robak, Shore.... and guess what? they are playing on the Panthers correct? You earn a spot by playing solid hockey, and displaying potential if you are a young player. The whole thing with Ellerby IMO is that Tallon didn't want to say straight up "he was not good enough", so rather be kinder and say he was not drafted by you and not part of your plans.
