I think Ellis will be here for awhile, he is perfect in our bottom pairing/2nd PP unit defensemen.

Im guessing 3 - 4 year deal at 2.1 mil with his salary increasing every year to the 2.1 or so
This. He's an RFA. My guess is that they were happy with last years progression and are wanting a longer term deal (say five years or so). If they can't come to a conclusion before camp, he has another couple years of RFA, so he'll sign a 1-2 year deal and try again.
