As far as which goalie I would rather keep between Halak and Elliott if forced to choose between them, for me it's Halak and it's not even particularly close. Elliott had one historic season with us, but it's clearly an outlier. Beyond that, Halak's regular season performances (minimum 30 games played) routinely trump Elliott's, and Halak's playoff resume is clearly superior as well.

I'm far from ready to throw Halak under the bus because: 1) He injured/re-injured his groin (an injury notorious for lingering and being slow to heal) during a shortened season. 2) His numbers in the whopping 16 games he played this season were far below his averages.

I think the Blues are in trouble if they're rolling with Elliott/Allen next year.
Finally! Someone here who is not turning into a Canucks fan with our goalies. I completely agree with your assessment.
