While Elliott did underachieve, he was great at the tail end of the season. I'd say if anyone underachieved it was Nermark.
And lastly, saying we've been struggling in the draft is just downright wrong. I expect better from HF writers than blatantly wrong statements like that. Since '09 we've hit on about 16 players, more than 50%.
