Doesn't matter. OV had the puck, Ellis angled him and initiated contact, OV turned the puck over. Great job by Ellis!

Yup, and we have to remember that Ovechkin smokes guys the size of Weber pretty routinely.

Point taken. Do you think with a little more weight and strength, Ellis might dish out more than he took on that hit? You don't want Ellis landing on his kiester every time he has to take on a strong, agile forward. I see Frankie deliver with a little more force. I guess I'm asking if he needs to fill out his frame to handle the grind of an long, long NHL season??

In that particular hit, yes, more weight would have helped. Ovechkin is a pretty big guy, and he was braced for that. If Ellis catches him off guard I think Ovechkin at least stumbles. Ellis didn't take any time at all to get back up. What I like most is how hard he hustles to get into the break out that he created by forcing that turnover

Ovechkin is a beast, let's not forget that when judging the hit. Plus AO has about 4 inches and 20 ilbs on him. I'm just stoked that Ellis didn't shy away from the contact and as others have stated, separated him from the puck and hustled back to help the breakout. I think more experience going against larger faster guys will benefit him in the long run.

What he said!!! While a lot of people don't like the fact that a big thundering hit that would rock Ovi didn't happen - at least he did NOT have the puck after that.

Ellis just bounced right off of him.

Honestly. those don't hurt. you just pretty much fall on the most padded area of your body.

With Ellis' skating problems how is it he's in the position to make that play?

Or hustle back into the play up ice?

I honestly haven't seen any skating problems. He's not Scott Niedermeyer back there, but he's certainly not Cody Franson either...

“I give Ellis a lot of credit,” Trotz said. “He was trying to make a statement of, ‘Hey, I can hang with the big boys.’ And he can. He stepped up and tried to lay the hit. But Ovechkin probably had him by about 40 pounds. (Ovechkin) has that man-strength and power. It was a big hit. Ellis actually threw the hit, but (Ellis) flew a lot farther than Ovechkin did. Ovechkin had the size advantage. But I give Ellie a lot of credit. He didn’t avoid it. He went after it. I admire that in him.”

I think Ellis is going to make the team, and the fans are going to fall in love with him because not only will he be the little talented guy but he'll be the little talented guy who doesn't mind throwing around what little weight he does have.

More on Ellis from Trotz

Quote:
Furthermore, Trotz liked the improvements of defenseman Ryan Ellis last night: “Ellis was 100 times better than he was in game one,” Trotz said. “He didn’t turn the puck over like he did. His first game he was a turnover machine early, then he started stabilizing. I thought he played a pretty good game.”
