who is Ellis?
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Why meh? Ellis was probably the best day to day player on the Griffins last season and one of the big surprises. If he keeps improving the way he has the past few seasons, I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the Wings roster in a year or two.

Great signing, he's a good 3rd/4th line guy and not aftraid of the front of the net. Not known to drop the gloves, but he's gritty! I've always liked Ellis, glad they showed some faith in him with the 2yr deal, he will be a Red Wing, if not this year, than next for sure....

Well, if the Wings refuse to go out and get some grit via the free agent market, they might as well try to develop it from within the system.

i'm not saying he's a bad player or anything..
i just wish it would have been a player that the Red Wings signed (aka datsyuk/kronwall/zetterberg), not grand rapids that's all.

That's all anyone ever talks about on this board, getting Datsyuk, Zets and Knonwall signed... it's a priority, yes, but not the only thing that matters

Not like those three are the future success and competitiveness of the team or anything. No reason to be concerned. Move along.

Hopefully he stays in GR the entire season. He needs the work, but I could see him playing in Detroit in the future. He's got a nose for the net.
