If he breaks he breaks but we had Zidlicky who is the same size played top pair minutes through his career. Im not convinced Ellis is top pair but theres no way to put one of the younger guys on the second pair with KK. Ekholm may be the solution who knows the prospects of finding a top 4 guy are pretty slim in the UFA market. Cycling culls like Hannan thru should not be an option.
