[Signing] Lightning re-sign Brian Elliott

Recommended Posts

Huge accomplishment for a goalie drafted in the 9th round of the 2003 draft to still be playing in the NHL. Second last pick in the entire 2003 draft. The only other active player drafted in that round oddly enough is Halak.


But Elliott is a perfect fit for the Lightning. Vasilevsky is a work horse who'll play 55-65 games a season. Need a veteran who can come in and play the rest of those games and not complain about being the backup. Gives Tampa Bay more time to develop Hugo Alnefelt who needs to play more games at his age. And Elliott is a nice fit after the retirement of Curtis McElhinney. And Elliott doesn't cost much to have as a backup.


It's funny, there's a world where the Lightning have Spencer Martin as their backup next season if they didn't decide to give us our backup next year for free last summer.
