I'd take Rask alone over Halak/Elliot.

Thomas/Rask. Everybody knows the West has better defence, so that has to be used in Elliott and Halak's favour.

Halak is a good goalie. Elliott is good behind a great defence, but is pretty bad besides that. Thomas won the Conn Smythe a year ago.

Thomas > Rask > Halak > Elliott

I'm totally unsure what could possibly cause people to think otherwise.

I hope Elliott does well, but I've seen him play enough games in his career to easily pass him over in this poll even with Halak who I've always been a fan of.
