I don't think there's any question that Elliott is a better goaltender than he's looked to start this season, so talking about him like this is his true talent level isn't going to lead to a very productive discussion.

Did he play anywhere during the lockout? He looks incredibly rusty to me from a technical standpoint, and those issues are being compounded by shaken confidence as the number of poor performances piles up.

The way the team is playing around him sure isn't helping. Blown assignments galore, with much worse puck pursuit/pressure and gap control than I expected to see. This team used to consistently own the middle of the ice, hound teams off the puck on the back-check in transition, and outnumber teams at the point of attack. Where did that team go?
