Ellis has been great so far, and the D has been surprisingly effective at keeping the front of the net clear. That's been a problem in the past few games, hopefully to be resolved.
I used to think the "Jordan is better than Eric" talk was just Pens fans being Pens fans. But I can kinda see what they meant now. Eric is the rarer scoring talent, but Jordan has looked a whole lot better at simply getting the puck to the right end of the rink and keeping it there.
