He didn't have to deal with that with Colorado and was able to produce. I'll bet his numbers in the NHL are better than his AHL numbers for that reason, unless he's given more than half a season to adjust to the AHL. I think he'll be fine.
Elliott may be the most talented player on that roster and has the highest potential but right now he isn't the best player on that team. At AHL-level Thomas Pöck is an All-Star player. A point per game offensive D-man. I haven't watch any of Lake Erie's games but I'd be willing to bet that Pöck faces tougher minutes than Elliott. While Pöck probably never plays another game in NHL, don't underestimate him. He's a good player.
