The Nashville Predators have traded defenseman Ryan Ellis to the Philadelphia Flyers for ahead Nolan Patrick and defenseman Philippe Myers.
The Predators commerce Patrick to the Vegas Golden Knights for Cody Glass.
Ideas from the media
Sam Carchidi: “Excellent commerce by Fletcher IMO. Patrick and Myers each have potential, however Ellis turns into #Flyers’ finest defender. He’s a Kimmo Timonen sort. He has six years remaining on his contract, with an annual salary-cap hit of $6.25 million.”
Jason Gregor: “Ellis possible might be paired with Provorov. Stable pair. Just like the deal for PHI.
McCrimmon had Patrick in Brandon for 3 years. Is aware of him very properly. Contemporary begin for him in Vegas.
Myers is strong D. Glass might want to buck the “offence goes to die in NSH” development. *Besides Forsberg”
Frank Seravalli: “Projection is with #Flyers transferring Nolan Patrick, they’ll now have the flexibility to guard James van Riemsdyk. Fairly large change for #SeaKraken in previous few minutes.”
Charlie O’Connor: “Will clearly be doing a full write-up on the deal, however in brief, I prefer it lots for the Flyers. Clearly it addresses their largest want. Assuming 2020-21 is an outlier, Ellis is a really, superb RHD. And his $6.25 mil cap hit is greater than manageable.”
Invoice Meltzer: “The commerce is Phil Myers and Nolan Patrick for Ryan Ellis. Well being is a priority however Ellis can have an effect akin to a RH model of Kimmo Timonen acquisition in 2007. He’ll play all conditions and immediately grow to be a part of management group.”
Patrick Bacon: The Prospect Projection mannequin is a bit kinder to glass, who continues to be thought of a “prospect” as a result of he’s but to play 82 NHL video games. His scoring has not been almost as unhealthy as his underlying offensive metrics within the NHL, however perhaps the metrics with extra context are extra telling”
Steve Carp: “Thought Glass for Patrick may’ve occurred in April, not July. Nevertheless it figured to go down. Perhaps GMKM can get Patrick to rediscover his sport assuming he can ever keep wholesome.”
