Secondly, Elliott played far more than a 'support role' over that streak last year. He was Ottawa's best or second best player. Here are the stats of the support player over that streak...

He was phenomenal and the first star in the majority of those games and the 1st star of the week in the NHL over Jan 18-24 and the second star of the week the next week. Don't down play the importance of Elliott last year.
Your point was gold until the last two words killed it.

Until something triggers it, the guy who we TRADED for to be the #1 will get every chance.

Why do people struggle with this so much?
