Brian Elliott had a horrible finish to the 2010-11 season. He finished the season with a 3.34 GAA and .893 save percentage. His season was tainted even more, after finishing the season 2-8-1 with a 3.83 with the Colorado Avalanche, after a late season trade from Ottawa. Not a good way to sell yourself while heading into free agency. In the off season, Eliiot signed a two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues, expecting to battle with Ben Bishop for the back-up role behind Jaroslav Halak. Elliott has responded by setting a NHL single season record for save percentage, .940, and post-WWII record of a 1.56 GAA.
Even with the amazing season Elliott has had, his name is not being mention in the Vezina Trophy talks. Many people point out that he only played 38 games. What do you think? Is Brian Elliott Vezina worthy? I think he deserves to atleast be Vezina Finalist.
