With Ryan Suter out of town, the Nashville Predators need other defensemen to step up.
“With Ryan it’s about letting him go and play and supporting him,” Gill said. “He has all the tools to be effective. He needs someone to help him out. I think that’s where I can come in.”
An Ellis-Gill combination could be quite the “Odd Couple” of defensive pairings.
Ellis is very inexperienced, small and potentially explosive on offense.
Still, that might be the brilliant part about that potential duo. Both players can embrace their roles fully and support each other in the process – at least if things go according to plan.
