Dan Ellis seemed extremely excited about his rights being traded to the Montreal Canadiens, going off on Twitter about thrilled he was to be going to “hockey mecha”.
Now, it seems, Ellis is headed into the free agency market after all. Several reports have said that contract negotiations with Ellis never went very far, and now that free agency is about to begin he’s officially on the open market.
According to how Ellis reacted to the trade to Montreal, there’s still a chance he signs with the Canadiens.
