  • Flames' Brian Elliott: New starting goaltender in Calgary

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/24/16) Elliott was traded to the Flames on Friday in exchange for the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional third-round pick in 2018.

    The conditional pick will head to St. Louis if Elliott, who is an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season, resigns in Calgary. The Flames were determined to add a starting goaltender and they kicked the tires on Ben Bishop, although the price tag there was apparently too high for their likely. Elliott makes for a nice fallback option, though. He posted a 2.07 GAA and .930 save percentage in 42 games for the Blues this past season and while they don't have the roster depth that St. Louis does, they are just one year removed from making some noise in the playoffs. Clearly the unquestioned starter in Calgary, Elliott should make for a quality fantasy play this upcoming season.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Tandem with Jake Allen should stick

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/9/16) The Blues are likely to continue rolling with Elliott and Jake Allen as a tandem in 2016-17, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Elliott absorbed the lion's share of the work in the playoffs as Allen had endured a lower-body injury at the tail end of the regular season. These goalies complement each other well, and the Blues didn't seem to miss a beat when either player was injured during the 2015-16 campaign. Elliott had the better peripheral numbers -- 2.07 GAA and .930 save percentage compared to a 2.35 GAA and .920 save mark for Allen -- but Allen is six years younger and figures to be with the club for the long haul. Elliott will be an unrestricted free agent after this upcoming season; until then, he's dirt cheap with a cap hit of just $2.5 million.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Gives up four as Blues eliminated

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/25/16) Elliott allowed four goals on 26 shots as his Blues were eliminated by the Sharks in Game 6 on Wednesday.

    Elliott struggled in Game 6 for the third series in a row, but this time he won't get a chance to redeem himself. The veteran goaltender should nonetheless hold his head high, as the Blues would never have gotten to this point without his 2.44 GAA and .921 save percentage against a gauntlet of dangerous offenses in the postseason.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Named starter for Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/24/16) Elliott will tend the twine for Wednesday's Game 6 against the Sharks.

    After getting benched for Games 4 and 5, Elliott reclaims the starter's crease and ends the brief playoff run of Jake Allen. The netminder has been extremely inconsistent in his last 10 postseason outings as he went 5-5 with a .921 save percentage that includes allowing just one goal to sneak past him in four of those contests. Prior to getting relegated to the bench, the 31-year-old had made 20 consecutive starts which could have contributed to his poor performance. Fantasy owners will hope a few nights off will rejuvenate Elliott enough that he can force a Game 7.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Takes seat in third period of Game 3 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/16) Elliott was benched in the third period after giving up three goals on 14 shots during Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Sharks in Game 3.

    The netminder has now given up three-plus goals in two straight, while also receiving no support from the Blues offense in what has been a disastrous two-game stretch. The benching may not help his psyche, but Elliott will need to bounce back in Game 4 if St. Louis wants to stay competitive in the series. Over three contests so far, the 31-year-old has a .875 save percentage, which simply won't get it done against a powerful San Jose offense.

    Elliott allowed three goals on just 21 shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.Elliott has now dropped four straight, and Monday's 18 saves actually marked his highest total in that department in his past three games. Jake Allen received consecutive starts last week and despite coach Ken Hitchcock's recent reassurance that Elliott will start the majority of the games down the stretch, it's possible the goalie situation will become more fluid while the 29-year-old struggles.
