against the Kings but it should be said that the Kings were simply killing the entire St Louis team, not just the goalie. Saying that Elliott sucked in the playoffs without mentionning that the entire Blues team was like a deer in the headlights in round 2 makes it sound like Elliott is the reason St Louis lost, and that's far from the truth. He could have been better, but I don't think Hasek in his prime could have saved them.
he doesn't suck compared to you or to me, but compared to the other goaltenders in the playoffs, he sucks. (meaning he lets in a few softies)
