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.
They do know defensemen for the most part. However, they've made a few blunders too.
Like Ryan Parent or even Jon Blum
