C'mon Poile, get something for him before his value plummets to zero.
Ryan Ellis is a good hockey player, and there is absolutely a place for him. He is learning how to play/think the game in a way that has really cut down on the defensive liability resulting from his midget status. He is also starting to show flashes of some pretty strong offense from the blueline. He and Ekholm have looked great IMO, and if nothing changes, they both deserve extensions at the end of the season

I don't see how Josi and Jones make him irrelevant. Josi has scared us a bit with injuries so its not like he's a lock to have a long and great career, and Jones has made as many young player mistakes leading to goals this year as Ellis did when he was first playing in the NHL. Not to say that I don't have faith in either of those guys, (I'd be crazy not to like what I've seen from Jones) but ideally in a few years a defense of

Weber-Jones
Klein-Josi
Ellis-Ekholm

Would be very strong
