We're just going to get into a long subjective divide about the term "elite". There are some that will start and end the discussion by saying that someone who has only been a 2nd team post-season all-star has never truly been elite in the first place, so... there's that. You tell me how loose your definition of "elite" is, and I'll decide how much typing I need to do.
For example, what does it mean to you when a guy essentially has 4 straight seasons where he averaged 23+ mins/night - and on occasion see that ice time still increase in the playoffs?
