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.
You forgot Gaunce. Gaunce could be that 1st pairing guy, if Siemens doesn't develop into that role.
