When I see a team get "demoralized" that quickly, it means a lack of effort to me.
I disagree. You can have a great team effort but if one person sabotages the whole team effort it is not uncommon to have it demoralize the group.
It is not a result of lack of effort.
Also, I didn't realize our save % was that bad, holy frankinballs.
Yeah, it is brutal
I'd be just fine with that situation, I think someone would make a claim on Ells, but the more I see of Allen the more I like him.
IF Allen shows himself worthy of a spot on the NHL team, who cares if someone makes a claim on Elliott??
You should still have two NHL caliber goalies and for less money actually. Not that is a concern with this team cap wise. But the production shouldn't drop if Allen proves himself NHL worthy.
Sure Elliott was great last year, but his previous time in Ottawa and Colorado look more like career backup than NHL All Star to me.
Be thankful you got All Star production from him last year and move on.
