Void Stalker Question

If I have a Void Stalker in play, and my opponent casts a creature with an etb effect (Thragtusk in this case), can I activate Stalkers ability before the etb effect resolves? Does he get the token? Thanks.
you can activate before the trigger resolves
he will get the token and he will gain 5 life regardless

You can, but it won't do anything to a trigger. Once an ability is on the stack, it exists independent of the source that made it. So removing the Thragtusk will do nothing to the enter the battlefield trigger and they'll still gain life (and since Thragtusk left the battlefield, its leave the battlefield ability will trigger and they'll get a token).
