As the NHL trade deadline grows nearer and nearer, misconceptions about trades grow larger and larger. The evidence?
A recent rumour stated: Hemsky for Ellis.
Sorry Canadian die hards, Ryan Ellis is not the stud that Pierre Mcguire makes him out to be. In fact, he may be the most overrated prospect of all time. His small stature, ankle skating, and childish attitude (+ appearance) confirm my belief.
The question I ask is why would you trade a franchise player for a minor leaguer at best? The answer is, you wouldn't unless you extremely over value WJC performance and Media hype.
I'll finish by begging Tambellini/Lowe to steer clear of all trades that involve little stinky Ryan Ellis.
