I think too many people care about the term 'elite'. Personally, I haven't called him elite. I think that term, if to be used, is reserved for teh very top echelon of goalies. That being Rinne, Lundqvist, Thomas, and now Quick.

His confidence is shot. That's always been the knock against him, consistency, and for the past year and a half, it looked like he battled it mostly. But then the Islanders broke him, and Byslma decided it'd be best to rest him down the stretch instead of let him play himself out of it. I'm still pissed off at that (and you can go back to the GDT's, I was pissed at the time too).
