Ellis isn't gonna' be moving big bodies out from in front of Peks - but $uter didn't, either. He moves the puck decently, gets decent position, has a plus-shot; he's much better along the boards this year, too. I'm not ready to banish him to permanent 3rd pair just yet and if Eckholm keeps it up, that could be a mighty nice 3rd pair when Josi gets back.
Bartley is the problem right now. I'm comfortable with Eckholm there when Josi gets back, but maybe we should call someone up to try on the third pair.
