By the time the Devils acquired Ellett, his game had developed to where he was a reliable two-way defenseman. History
proved that he was just a rental, but he was a decent rental.
Yes, even if the points weren't there. By this point in time, he was consistently a 20-point scorer. As a Jet and Maple
Leaf, he was consistently in the 40s. Not sure if that was because his accountability as an offensive player wasn't called
to task as often or if his skills had went south.
His first season with the Bruins was on par with his recent output, but his second one was injury-ridden, or at least
enough so that his output was effected.
As was his final season in the League, with the St. Louis Blues. He missed time late in the season with a groin injury
and finished with 10 points that year.
At one time, he owned the New Mexico Scorpions of the CHL. That team folded in 2009.
