And to think Mike Smith was the "other" under the radar UFA goalie back in the summer of 2011 to back up Halak when Smith signed with Phoenix instead...
Back to Elliott : How many employers grant you a 3 week paid leave to regain your "Confidence?" then put you back out there and you under perform once again? And during the lockout why didn't you play somewhere to stay sharp?
It's not all Elliott's fault. The Blues are not "buying in" most nights this lockout shortened season. However, your goalie is the last line of defense. Sometimes you need a goalie to steal a game or playoff series. Since that LA series Elliot has proven that goalie from last year was a mirage, and not a true barometer to measure, he's just a mediorce at best goalie who had failed previous stops in Ottowa & Colorado. I liked the idea of getting Peter Budaj from the Habs but if you were the the Habs would you do this?
Bring up Allen to back up Halak, and get what you can for Elliott, or just waive him. Time to move on.
