I like this, a lot. I hope the terms are reasonable. I'm hearing its a 2 year contract.

He went back. Seems like a good signing depending on price, which should be cheap so I have no problems with this.

Should be a good backup to Lehtonen, although he won't be used much.

EDIT: It is cheap, good signing. Gives Campbell more time in the AHL and Bachman isn't that great.

This solves the backup goalie issue. Nill is acting fast.

Good signing for Dallas. Upgrade over Bachman/Nihlstorp and will be a good bridge guy until Campbell is ready to go.

He was good as a backup for us. The minute Ward went down and Ellis became the starter, he showed some leaks.

Wish him the best.

I'm surprised Carolina couldn't intrigue Ellis with this sort of deal.

He wasn't going to make much on the open market, but by george, he and Kari will win a lot of games next season.

Like this deal for Dallas. Always kinda liked Ellis. Provides the Stars with a good back up and someone to help spell Lethonen.

Ellis played great as a backup last year with the Canes. Once Ward went down he couldn't step up and be the guy, but that won't be needed as long as Lehtonen stays healthy. Good signing IMHO.
