Ian Mendes was just on the Team1200. His opinion was that if you play the percentages then you go with Elliott but if you want to shake things up you go with Brodeur. He thought that if Brodeur had not gotten sick he could have carried the Sens through the long winning streak that Elliott ended up finishing. He basically credited Brodeur for kick starting the Sens on that run and the Sens improved play for making Elliott look good.
If this franchise wants to permanently allienate their goaltenders let them start Brodeur. Right now Brian Elliott is this team's number one - he should be in there. If he's not in there I'll be absolutely disappointed with CC. This team needs some stability in net - BE provided that stability through the majority of the season and has clearly proved he is the number one on this team. These playoffs are a great learning experience for him and quite frankly he's going to have to learn what it feels like to be playing in an actual elimination game.
