Monday Hurricanes Report

My Opinion: I would like to see Ellis back in a Hurricanes’ sweater, but who knows how soon a deal could be done. Jim Rutherford said earlier he would allow his free agents to test the market and the Canes’ brass may allow Ellis to do that so that he sees there is a small market for him, which could lead to a cheaper deal.
