There are a couple of factors I consider when contemplating this (as I listen to the LEM game on radio):-
+ In 2010 / 2011 Kevin Shattenkirk (an obvious offensive dynamo) had 0 goals, 0 assists in 10 games for LEM.
+ My personal opinion, is that Sacco, Quinn and Army may have told Chynoweth to ensure Elliott works solely on his DEFENSIVE game, as we all know how good Elliott is offensively. This "may" reflect his numbers?
+ Elliott had a very short stint at NHL level. What I saw was some defensive flaws that unfortunately stood out a little, BUT his numbers were outstanding. I mean 39 games, 13 points at +2 isn't a dead beat.
+ Barrie also seemed to do very well at NHL levels, and for mine, seemed very Shattenkirquest in his approach (my favorite NHL defensemen was and probably is Shatts - even got a signed puck from him
+ Barrie has been outstanding at AHL levels.
I could go either way tbh
