The younger Ellis was very dynamic in his high-scoring junior days, and had a relatively smooth transition to the AHL last year before finishing the season in the NHL; Ellis has had little trouble throught he first two rounds with 90%+ wins overs Deschamps and Kubalik. The elder Gustafsson was one of the top scoring AHL D a year ago before splitting time between the AHL and NHL last year and is on the cusp of a full-time NHL spot.
