The Preds just hired a guy who was one of the best smaller offensive defensemen that has played in the NHL. This hire was not made without Ellis in mind. With that said not every player will we perfect and ideal in every aspect. Give the kid a damn chance. The Preds didn't draft him as high as they did by drawing a name out of a hat. I think the Preds staff know a thing or two about defensemen.
Agreed at times he showed great things last year.. We have the perfect coach for him to learn from now.. I expect next year we will be talking about what one to move to make room in the top 4
