Elliott with another shutout

So in another reactionary move last season, Murray offloads a cheap Elliott that despite having a down campaign last season was the reason the Sens made the playoffs in 2009-2010.

Now we have a $4 million goalie whose stats are bottom of the league, while cheap Elliott is leading or at the top of the league in a bunch of stats with a sizable sample size of games to look at.

Although I know that Elliott can be streaky, I think its pretty obvious that Murray made another trading blunder on this.

Frustrating too, since we had spent 7 years developing Elliott...

Hmmm a cup contending team playing a very defensive system will make any goalie look great.

Ken Hitchcock makes another average goalie look stellar.

I'm happy for Elliott, but he wouldn't be putting up these numbers here. He was done here.

Management mishandles Elliott... in most normal cases Elliott would just be breaking into the league now as a number one after being given time to ease into the role as a backup.

Here he was forced to play way to much with no protection and the then adding the team sucking and it killed confidence.

I knew Elliott had high end ability... it was obvious with his hot streaks.

Just that he had consistency issues from being so young and forced to do to much... not in that position anymore and he can be a good goaltender in this league... reminds me of the Leaf version Belfour.

I wish Elliot all the best, but you can't simply cut and paste his performance with the Blues and suggest he would do the same anywhere else.

I seem to remember another ex-Sen goalie looking pretty good under Hitchcock's system...

Anderson has been fine outside of the early blowouts.

Elliott has been better but Anderson is doing fine.

He put up numbers that were just as solid with Davis Payne coaching on an underperforming team...Its not all Hitchcock...Elliott always had super hot streaks that showed what he could be...People placed hope in Leclaire mainly based on 1 playoff game vs Pitt and then when Elliott struggles(due to various reasons) he gets scapegoated and sent packing...

The entire goaltending situation was handled terribly last season...Overplaying Elliott, Having Lehner go up and down and not settling in until later in the year...Why was a veteran not brought in to help out? Thats on the Murrays....to say anything different is laughable...

Anderson may rebound, he may not, but to just say that Elliott sucks and we are better off with Andy is an unknown as well...We are basing Anderson;s expectations from when HE was on a playoff team in COL and when he was playing meaningless games with us last year...

Would be nice to have Landeskog/Nugent-Hopkins plus a refreshed Elliott, but Murray takes his cues from Don Brennan and Bruce Garrioch and now we're in no-man's land 11th-10th.

We've basically become the Carolina Hurricanes/Toronto Maple Leafs of a few years ago.

I still like Elliott, but the Blues D > Ottawa D when it comes to playing defensive D for their goalie, Ottawa's defensive style is way different and we give up TONS, and I mean TONS, of high quality scoring opportunities, the Blues don't.

Elliott has been awesome though still for them this year, there is no doubt about that. He always had the athleticism, the big thing was could he be an NHL goalie mentally? Looks like he's maturing in that department as well. While I agree that we kinda mishandled Elliott, we also had no other choice, which was unfortunate for Elliott.

You stick most goalies behind our D aside from the few top level elite goalies, and the stats are going to look the same as Andersons IMO.

@ people criticizing Murray for moving Elliott.

Last year, everyone was laughing at the Avs and he was awful even after the trade.

He wasn't good here and I think his confidence was shot. Always liked him and thought people were hard on him, especially being a young goalie having to carry the whole load (now he has Halak supporting him). I'm happy he's doing well but let's not "Murray " on this trade...

It's too bad he wasn't eased in more.

No i would not say Ottawa has become the Leafs of a few years ago Ottawa aunlike the leafs a few years ago are a young team and have a few good young players on the way Ottawa is in good shape going forward sure it will take time but no there not a team that will be in no mans land.

I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,"
Yeah.

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Exactly. He was put in two of the worst situation's last year in terms of the defences playing in front of him. Now that he's playing on a team that can play defence of course he's playing better. He's always had talent, it's nice to see him putting it together.

Anderson stole more games at the end of last season then Elliott did in his entire time with the Senators. Anderson is playing behind a very inexperienced defense that gives up much, much more goal-scoring chances than Elliott's team.

When the chips were down, Elliott collapsed under the pressure. Thanks but no thanks.

We wouldn't have resigned him anyway, so I'm just glad Colorado didn't do that either.
