I don't know of any Sens fans that has ill wishes for Elliott. The sentiment I see is that fans are happy he has had success with the Blues, but are not ready to buy into that he is a legit #1 goalie based on a 38 game season where he had shared responsibilities, and had problems when he had to be the #1 in the playoff.
The Kings won the cup in convincing fashion, and a lot of that had to do with superior goal-keeping, and that was very apparent in the Kings-Blues series.
In Ottawa we saw Elliott have lights out stretches with the Sens and then crumble under the pressure of being the outright #1. Power to him if the success from last year ends up being a step on the road to allowing him to grab the #1 mantle. I am rooting for him to do that, and when he does it will be the first to acknowledge that, but he isn't there yet.
