If you guys remember, Gerber was the starter for most of the season but Ward came in during the playoffs and had his Conn Smythe run on the way to winning the cup.
The only thing I'm worried about is Peters as the back-up.

Glad to see you guys are optimistic about Ellis...I should preface by saying that I am a total hockey noob but to me it seems like Ellis spits out a ton of rebounds which really scares me with our defense. Am I wrong to be worried?
He does spit out a lot of rebounds so it seems, but a lot of them end up behind the net our out to the sides. The few has has let go in the slot have been cleared well by our defensemen.

By the way, I expect Justin Peters to get the call up and be Ellis's back-up. I also wouldn't be surprised if they split ice time 50/50 between Ellis and Peters because both struggle as the number one, but our above average as back-ups.
