Yesterday we weighed in on the Keaton Ellerby trade. Here's some reactions from Florida as he leaves his old team.

First we asked the Panthers blog Litter Box Cats to give us a scouting report. Here's what Alex Calloway had to say:

Ellerby has great size (six-foot-six) and solid skating. He's decent on the penalty kill and is willing to sacrifice his body to block shots. The only thing keeping Ellerby from developing into a top four defensemen is his hockey sense, but not a bad deal for a fifth round pick.

For more, be sure to check out LBC's post on the trade, where they ask the community to weigh in on whether they received enough of a return.

Ellerby's potential was a hot button topic over the years. It may remind Kings fans of the debates we still have over Thomas Hickey and Andrei Loktionov.
