Don't want to rip who's not there nor quibble with who is, but the most shocking name on that list to me -- though not so, based on his stellar numbers -- is Brian Elliott. I dismissed Elliott's NHL future over the summer and thought he was a silly signing for the Blues, so as soon as I finish this post I'll pull out that plate of crow I have warming up in the microwave.
Cheers to the whole lot of 'em. But especially to Tavares.
