QFT,

Besides, this revisionist history amuses me. It's not like Anderson was playing great hockey for the Avalanche at the time. Their crappy play had less to do with Elliott sucking and more to do with the team being crappy, mostly due to injuries.

Yeah, Elliott sucked for them, but they could have just played their backup to try to lose games. This conspiracy theory that they picked up Elliott, solely to improve their draft position reeks of people with tinfoil hats hiding in their basements.
