Dan Ellis Tweets Goodbye

Not sure if it's been posted yet (haven't been around much). Feel free to move/delete if necessary.

Gonna miss Nashville. All the guys...the city and the fans. It was a great place to break in but time to reach another level.

Expected but the question is this, will he get paid? Honestly, Mirtle said on his twitter there is only really 3 starting spots. Also a whole bunch of goal depth in the NHL FA market.

It's been great having you, Dan.
It's not like he's reading this, but what a classy guy. I'll always follow his Twitter.

I knew it would happen, but I will miss his humor anyway.

We're gonna miss you Danny! Your Twitters keep me sane. Now that says a lot about my mental state, but things won't be the same without you and your..."Oh Absolutely"

Obviously he was told today that the team was not going to meet his current contract demands and was wished good luck and told to keep in contact in case anything changes. Nothing really new, we all knew as soon as Rinne was extended that Ellis was going to test the FA market this summer and with good reason.

Dan clearly wants an opportunity to be at least in a 1a/1b situation and really prefers a spot where he can compete for the No. 1 job outright and he was not going to get that opportunity here. Rinne will likely play a Brodeur-like schedule next season (75+ starts) and there is simply no room for Ellis here.

IMO, he will likely be a prime target for "Nashville North", but could wind up in a number of places. He's gonna have to sign early on July 1st and be flexible with his contract terms to really get the situation he wants, but I believe we'll see him making highlights somewhere next season...hopefully in the Eastern Conference!!!

lots of tweets speculating about where hes going.. philly, MTL, Detroit(wont happen, they have 2 goalies signed already), Colorado...

I think Dan is going to be disappointed but I also think he isnt coming back here even if he has to take a lower paying backup spot again.

I hope San Jose looks at him. We could use a platoon goalie system next year.

I'd love to grab Ellis if Niemi costs too much money. Hopefully the Hawks look into him... he seems like a great guy and a very viable option for many teams.

He's tweeted me multiple times, and seems like an all-around awesome guy. IF Niemi can't be signed, Ellis would be ideal.

Best of luck to him.

Maybe, it won't be Philly if they are offering 2M to Turco and Nabokov. I'd be shocked if he got more than that from anyone.

Good quality guy and such a hoot to follow on Twitter. I wish him well in the future. I wonder if he's already moved his stuff from the net? http://www.theonion.com/articles/goa...g-in-net,2428/
