Habs get Ellis from Preds to back up Price

More moves in Montreal announced Tuesday night as the Habs have acquired forward Dustin Boyd and goaltender Dan Ellis from Nashville in exchange for on-the-outs forward Sergei Kostitsyn, who had long worn out his welcome in Montreal.

Ellis will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday. Assuming he signs, his acquisition apparently puts to rest the notion of the Habs signing Martin Biron as Carey Price's backup that has been getting a lot of play in recent days. Biron, of course, is likely the Sabres'  top free-agent choice to replace Patrick Lalime as Ryan Miller's backup.

Ellis'  Twitter account seems to indicate he's thrilled with the deal and wants to get a contract done.
