Recoil is elasticity

Compliance is inversely proportional to elasticity (one goes up, other goes down)

when lung deflated, it is a bleb type mass which cannot expand. It has lost compliance. So there is rather no talk of elasticity (or recoil) as there no normal resting potential to revert back to. Its not inflating!

Am I able to say, that elastic recoil is on it max? Thus, increased ?
