Elliot was a free agent signing and had never really played well for Ottawa or Colorado.

Basically, JD did not develop goaltending from within to grow into the team. If he did, it hasn't manifested itself into the league yet. The closest may be Ben Bishop but he hasn't established himself as an NHL goalie even though everyone claims he is ready. Bishop was drafted before JD was hired in St. Louis though.
