Elliot is 1.69 with .938 sv% in 23 games in St. Louis. 15W, 5L, and 5 shutouts.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/statshome.htm

The point in getting Elliott is that he's shown he can play very well at the NHL level, his salary is low, and at least at the moment he is behind another good young starting goalie. There's no comparison on any of those points with Bishop plain and simple. Bishop may someday turn into an NHL goalie; I'm guessing the Blues will call him up when they trade away either Elliott or Halak, but right now he's a possibly up and coming minor league goalie. Given that we already have a few of those ourselves I wouldn't personally be interested in trading for another.


Elliott spent several seasons in Ottawa behind a weak defense(comparable to the Devils) and his numbers were below average. St. Louis has a pretty solid defense which I'm sure has a lot more to do with Elliott's numbers at present. So what I was originally pointing out was that Brian Elliott is definitely not the single contributing factor to his success. As a matter of fact, his play in previous seasons points out the opposite.
It's like Tim Thomas. He was pretty much a sh*t goaltender until Boston started working at getting some good d personnel like Zdeno Chara. That isn't exclusive to his succes though as he also started practicing things like yoga and other regimens to improve his flexibility and play.
I would definitely pass on Elliott.

The only problem I have with Halak is that you'll probably need to have another goalie to play at least 25 games per season. I've been a fan of his for a few years now, and I expected him to get a pretty big share of the workload in St. Louis so we could see what he would do when the job was finally all his and not shared with Price. But it's still pretty close to a shared 50/50 gig in St. Louis (54% Halak/ 46% Elliott). I guess it comes down to how much cash and cap hit you want to invest in the position.

I used to post on one of the Habs forums and they really, really hate the Devils :) So yeah, it would be great to have him if he could become a replacement for Marty long term and torment them for years!.

We need to spend a few mid round picks for our 4th line. Boston, Philly and Detroit, when healthy, all have 20-40 point player on their 4th line. When you add Janssen Boulton and Carter together you get 20 points most seasons. We are losing to good teams because we are losing the 3rd and 4th line battles. I wish we could have gotten Morrison for what he went for.

Parise - Zajac - Henrique
Kovalchuk - Josefson - Zubrus
Sykora - Elias - Clarkson
Ponikarovsky - Belanger - Brule

Something like that could compete with Boston and would cost peanuts.

I wish we didnt have financial problems because i think we could get Carter (the good one). Something like Zubrus and Josefson could get it done imo. Now I love JJ, but with Carter, we would have 3 nasty lines.

But Jason that team loses the 2nd line battle.

I want an addition for the 4th line but I don't see it coming. Hopefully the Devils get Zharkov up here to try him out, that would help a lot.

Well that would actually be the 3rd line. Elias line faces toughest competition, it's just a habit to put the shutdown line as the 3rd group.

So yesterday Dreger from TSN reported that he spoke directly to Gillis who said Raymond is NOT available...

while a few days earlier Lou stated that he's NOT trading Parise


yet...

Єklund (2.3% accurate): * Zach Parise is on the Kings' radar as well. For the first time yesterday I heard the Canucks as a possible destination with Mason Raymond being part of a package.

He's number 21 for the Canucks and he's pretty good. He's a super fast skater.

MayRay is a great skater. Incredibly fast ala Grabner. Great hands, too. He's nailed the spinorama a few times in shootouts.

Wouldn't be happy with him as the main piece in a trade for Zach though.

Is this some rumor you heard or something?

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Just a tip.
Around these parts we post some sort of link - even is its a bad Twitter or something - or clearly mark it is a rumor.
Folks get a little testy here around this time with simply - word of mouth - to go on.
