Montreal-Nashville trade including rights to UFA goalie Dan Ellis

Oh well, good trade though.

The Nashville Predators sent a pair of unrestricted free agents to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday in exchange for restricted free agent forward Sergei Kostitsyn.

In return for Kostitsyn, the Canadiens acquired goaltender Dan Ellis and forward Dustin Boyd. A fifth-round conditional pick in the 2012 Entry Draft could also be transferred from one team to the other depending on whether each player signs with his new team or if his rights end up being traded.

The 23-year-old Kostitsyn was a seventh-round pick of the Canadiens in the 2005 Entry Draft and played parts of three seasons with his older brother Andrei in Montreal. In 155 NHL games, he has recorded 24 goals and 68 points, including 7 goals and 18 points in 47 games this past season. He was scoreless in five playoff games.

Ellis, 30, was a second-round pick by the Stars in 2000. He won his NHL debut for Dallas during the 2003-04 season, then resurfaced in 2007-08 with the Predators. Ellis won a career-high 23 games for Nashville that season with a 2.34 goals-against average and .924 save percentage, but his numbers declined and he lost playing time the past two seasons following the emergence of Pekka Rinne. In 111 NHL games, Ellis has a 50-42-8 record with 10 shutouts, a 2.64 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

Boyd, 23, split last season between the Flames and Predators, totaling 11 goals and 24 points in 78 games. He was scoreless in four playoff games for Nashville. A third-round pick by Calgary in the 2004 Entry Draft, Boyd has 31 goals and 62 points in 210 NHL games.

Isn't Ellis a FA though? They still have to sign him.

Yeah, and most likely he won't sign for a backup role.

Yes...they traded for his rights, we'll see if they can get a deal done before free agency opens.

Hopefully they DON'T work something out. That is the problem with such an easy going guy. He won't pull a Hamhuis and be a jagoff because he is just too nice. Don't sign Dan, DON'T.

Won't break my heart if he signs.

I like him, but there's definitely better options out there.

Ellis has already stated that he realizes that it's a buyers market. My guess is he signs in Montreal.

It's a buyers' market... but there's no good reason to sign as a backup early. That being said, there might be a bit more opportunity in Montreal than elsewhere.

I agree. However I was hoping he signed with us. He is a decent tender who's price tag should be fairly inexpensive. Let's see if he signs now. At least with us he would have a chance to start.

I sure never heard Hamhuis say anything positive. Or Turco. Or Nabby. We'll see what happens.

Ellis was obviously at best the 3rd option on the flyers. The only thing that woulg bother me is if they start the season with Leighton/boucher. That is a recipe for disaster. Plenty of guys out there that are btter options. Obviosuly the price tage will depend a lot.

What was the first and second options? Flyers can't afford Nabocov. Turco is old and over and out.

Nabokov is less than a month older than Turco. Both are currently 34 years old. When did 34 years old become TOO OLD in the NHL? Would you have said the same for Recchi, Gordie Howe, Hasek? Also, I think our 3 best options are still there: Nabby, Turco and Mason.

Well lets see, they talked to those two so they are obviously the first 2 options. Why would they talk to turco if they thought he was old,over and out? Guess they dont share your sentiment. Why would they tal to Nabokov, knowing he wants a nice deal. Just for kicks and giggles i guess. Yet they didnt ask about Ellis, wonder why?
