I'm curious, who was Ellis's one career fight against?

Are you using this fight as an example of him being an "active" tough guy?
He's not active lately and quite frankly I don't know why people feel he has to be. That is not my point nor do I think it even matters how active he is at this age, especially in a league like the LNAH. During the lockout he already killed the idea that these goons would walk through him like some here were saying, the majority of them are sub par compared to the higher leagues. He has nothing left to prove to the LNAH, or anyone else really. Brashear isn't the only one in that league who 'crosses the line' (it is a pure goon league after all, I'm not sure why everyone seems so shocked or offended stuff like this happens), so if someone wants to hold him responsible then that is up to them. For whatever reason, no one has done it yet, which I find astonishing.
All I am doing is giving that fight some context (like you did with the others), since you brought it up like it was a knock against him...fighting a goalie with no career fights sounds pretty awful until you see the whole picture - which was Brashear holding someone responsible for an obvious slash to his teammate's ankle. The goalie deserved it and it doesn't matter if he has never had a penalty before. Why should it?
Anyways, I'll let you continue your fight with solidus, since you two are seemingly arguing different things than me.
