i agree, this trade was a bad move at the time, and with the season filled with injuries, the panthers made a stupid move. Now even more injuries,Ellerby would have been much more useful then Yonkman and whatever other young or useless guys that come up. it's not like they got a great deal for him, why not keep him to closer to the trade deadline or when Jovo is ready to come back? Stupid move...very stupid.
BTW I ddint really like ellerby when he was here, but he looked much better the last 3 or 4 games he was in playing with Strachan.
