The following is a recorded phone conversation of Brian Elliott and Doug Armstrong shortly after the Blues resigned Elliott to a three year deal.
Doug Armstrong: Hey Brian, I’ve got some news for you.
Brian Elliott: What is it Doug?
Doug Armstrong: We’ve resign you instead of Miller!
Brian Elliott: Yay! Does that mean I get to be the number 1 goalie now?
Doug Armstrong: Not quite, I know you’ve been with this team the last three years, and you saved our butts the first two years when Halak collapsed, but we’re bringing up an AHL goalie so you can be a tandem again! Fans love it when I say tandem!
Brian Elliott: *hangs up*
