Team Explanation
I’m sure the age and last years injury would make this a a high risk offer for the sens. But if healthy, would this work, maybe Philly tosses another prospect in there?

I bet my buddy the sens would be a playoff team in 3 years last year, they are really damn close and a vet like Ellis with his 2 way skill could really help imo…

I wouldn't give up the 7th pick for him, but it's possible I would trade something for Ellis.

Speaking in a hypothetical situation where he is healthy… I honestly was thinking of him in a deal before with a conditional pick dealing with health… like if he plays 60 games it’s a first, if he plays 40 it’s a 2nd…

Obviously if healthy the guy is one of the best RHD in the game (2-way that is) but right now his value is LOW lol

White and a late 2nd is probably the most id offer

Mid to high priced players are difficult to trade for a good pick. Sens would be better at some time to spend that 6.5m on a UFA. And a 31 year old with four years left on his contract may not be appealing.
Because of Ellis cap/term/age, I think a trade to the Sens would Colin White and his three contract and second rounder or Zaitsev and his two year contract and third rounder.

Availability is also a skill. The man has played 1 full season his entire career. For comp's sake, Petry broke into the league one year ahead of Ellis and has played approximately 240 games more.

5 more years at 6.25M for an oft-injured 31 yr old is gonna get ugly in a hurry.

As a rule of thumb, a team looking for a major upgrade to their RHD side shouldn't be calling up the team with the worst RHD side in the league.

Taking Risto to move up 2 spots would be worse than if Ottawa just abdicated the pick entirely.

No i didn’t mean Risto. But I think Philly doesn’t have a 2nd round pick this year. So use that

This is very true.

I guess when my team paid to get rid of a 50 point D because he was bad in his own zone, then paid a 1st + to get a less productive D equally as bad in his own zone, and Mr.LTIR, I had to convince myself something made sense lol

I feel you, man. I've always had a soft spot for the Flyers (and Philly in general!), but some of their moves just perplex me.
