to be fair, as an outsider, if you have Weber and Jones as your 1-2 RD's you really should deal Ellis (and deal from a position of strength) as an offensive d, Ellis will never get the ice time he needs behind those two. You are better off having yourself a solid top 6 d who can kill penalties and be tough. Klein was a good candidate for that but even though he has a great contract, you're probably gonna want to find an economically friendlier option for your bottom pairing.

If I was a Pred's fan, I can't say I'd be sad if Ellis+ got flipped for Eberle.
