It's not Ellis, it's Lindy! Think of Ellis as Hecht. When Lindy gets him and falls in love with him suddenly he gets way more minutes than he is worth and starts to play the last minute every period etc. etc. and bam. Hatred begins.

People have no perspective. Apparently they don't realize he's a good AHL player and a great guy to have around prospects.

Glad Matt cleared. The Amerks could use the help, certainly aren't going to get it in trade....

With Girgensons possibly returning for the next game and the addition of Ellis to the team, who's exiting the lineup? I'd imagine Parker is probably tops on that list, but who else? Roy? Legault? Sundher has been hitting the scoresheet a bit, so I'd have to think they want to keep him in the lineup, especially because he's probably still seen as a viable prospect.

My guess would be Legault.

Rankin and Girgensons could be returning to the lineup tomorrow. With Ellis down now, Roy, Legault and Parker would come out. Sundher is definitely safe. His line is tearing up the league right now.

Good news for Rochester, they got an immediate upgrade up front and I think good news for Buffalo as he can help teach young prospects along the way. Also good news for Ellis, now he gets to play big minutes every night.

That's a pretty good forward lineup. Potentially adding Foligno, Armia, Grigs/Hodgson to the equation for playoff time, as well. It'll be interesting to see if they claim back Finley if the Isles expose him.

Ya, I am curious what they do here.

Sundher-Porter-Mancari
Adam-Ellis-Flynn
Rissmiller-Varone-Rankin
Tarnasky-Schofield-Girgensons

Obviously just a guess.

I'm not really sure if they would throw Girgensons on the 4th line even though that is where he belongs...we will see.

I think they'd have a good excuse starting him there after a month off. They should work him back in slowly. And they're winning right now, so there's not a huge need to upset their balance.

Lindy needs a vacation. The Sabres need a new coach.

Tomorrow is the last of the 30 days where the Sabres have first rights to claim him. Then again there's only 7 teams below them to claim him anyway.

All unfounded hate aside, he should be a major contributor for Rochester. Nice get for them.

It is not a coincidence the team has played better after JF's departure. Sabres fans just love beating a dead horse after a player has moved on.

Yeah, must not be a coincidence that they started winning when Hodgson, Foligno and Breannan left too, huh?

It was a confluence of a lot of things. Adding Pardy helped a lot. Then they added Rissmiller at forward. Toronto lost a lot of talent, including one of the better AHL vets around in Aucoin. And now the Amerks have a pretty good vet core in guys like Porter, Mancari, Rissmiller, Pardy, and even someone like Adam is practically a vet at that level now. They're just a good AHL team as currently constituted.

With Ellis, Rissmiller, and Pardy, the Amerks are looking pretty strong. Some teams lost a lot more talent to the NHL and weren't as equipped to replace it. Defense is still a concern, though. Hopefully McNabb has a strong finish to the season.

Ellis should mesh well with Chris Taylor mentoring the younger Amerks, very glad he cleared.

Well Matt Ellis helps out the Amerks quickly - his two minute tripping penalty in the first period "sets up" a shorthanded goal by Phil Varone. The Amerks lead Erie 2-0 after the first period. Ellis was also on the ice for the first Amerks goal (scored by Frederick Roy) and he has one shot on goal. His linemates are Frederick Roy and Patrick Rissmiller and is wearing #37 - same number he wore with the Sabres.

Update #1: Amerks lead 3-0 after 2 periods. Crawford went top shelf on the power-play. Ellis had one shot on goal in the second period - he has won at least five face-offs.

Update #2: Amerks win 4-1 - Varone empty netter accounted for the Amerks third period goal - he finished with two goals and two assists. Ellis finished the game with one shot (had a shot taken away?) was a plus one and of course had a two minute tripping penalty. Next game for Ellis and the Amerks - Friday night at home vs Houston Areos.

Thought this was interesting from Bill Hoppe:
The Sabres are 106-66-25 with Ellis in the lineup.

I'm not sharing this to show that Ellis wins NHL games, rather just to say that he hasn't been detrimental to the organization playing limited minutes as a 12-15th forward.

I don't think Matt Ellis is detrimental at all, but the problem (this year especially) is we have too many Matt Ellis's - Ellis, McCormick, Scott (aside from fighting abilities), Gerbe (while he recovers from injury), Hecht (now that the years are showing) are all players that are hard workers but don't bring anything beyond that to the team, which in combination makes the team weaker imo.
