Great move dumping Ellis’ contract for next year and picking up an expiring contract.  Gives Tampa the ability to re-assess their goal tending situation after the end of this season and either start with a clean slate, or resign their guys.  In other news, Dan Ellis Tweets “Now I got State Taxes?  How ever will I afford my perrier?!”

Looks like the Ellis/Smith clown car is coming to a fork in the road, single tear.
