I really like Barrie. He had a lot of Shattenkirk's qualities about him, and I think he was pretty unlucky at certain times not to pick up points, due to average finishing from other players and things.

BUT, I think Elliott has more of a chance of playing if:-
1. He bulks up in the off season;
2. He works with a defensive coach, to better understand the defensive side of his game.

Ideally, in the long run, I see BOTH making an impact for our team. Not this season, maybe not the next, but I'd like to see the following core (once respective players have developed properly) going forward:-

Johnson, Siemens, Elliott, Barrie, Wilson & Other, where other is a marquee defensemen acquired through free agency (which is hard, I know) to play with Johnson.
