There is an interesting trade proposal in this section called The Value of Dan Ellis to Philly.
Philly gets Ellis
Nashville gets Lupul
We get rid of a 2M back up and gain some much needed scoring. I think we might need to add something else to the deal...maybe the rights to Zanon if we can't sign him. They kind of owe us a good deal back for the Upshall, Hartnell and Timonen freebe!!!
Nittimaki has been given alot of opportunity to beat out Biron as the starter in Philly. He could easily back up Rinne. Ellis would push Biron (if they manage to re-sign him) and easily take over the number one spot there. There were all kinds of rumors that Philly was trying to trade for Ellis at the deadline. Remember that Ellis took the Preds to the playoffs when given the opportunity- Rinne didn't. No excuses for Rinne. Maybe Ellis and Hamhuis for Lupul would be a legit deal. Philly also needs better Dmen.
