    He has many assets but his lack of offensive numbers tell me something

    Would that something be a 'lack of offense?' the book on him says not to expect offense. Think Jason Smith, Chris Phillips or Matty Norstrom.

    The guy is an absolute rock. The Chris Phillips comparisons are dead-on.

    Ok just checking it out once I seen his scoring stats. Was worried there for a minute he was another Ty Wishart

    And this is bad because...?

    By the way, Ellerby is a better skater than Wishart. He rushes the puck with a lot of authority but Wishart seems to make fewer gaffes.

    looks like a lot of people doesnt even know that there are defensive minded players. players that think defense first and dont get a lot of points.

    to the guy that started the thread: do you think scott hannan is a bad player becasue he doesnt put up a lot of points????

    Scott Hannan isn't a point producer in the NHL but he put up 43 points in his draft year. Ellerby has scored 34 points over 3 years in the WHL. I think there should be a little concern about his ability to move the puck.

    How many points did Phillips have his draft year?

    Offense isnt expected out of him and he can be a great shut down guy and solid defensmen but the one knock on him right now is untimely penalties which even led to him being benched for game but since then hes been dominant

    Sometimes this "low points must = defensive defenceman who can't move the puck" equation can be misleading. There are defencemen, like Ellerby, who are very good at moving the puck- rushing it well into the other teams' zone or making good outlet passes- but who are not natural power play point men, don't have big shots, and maybe lack a little of that "jump into the play as the 4th forward" sense and therefore don't get the points of a Ray Macias. But they are not pure stay at home types either.

    Was Ellerby as good as Coburn in Coburn's draft year?
