Fire Elemental is almost undoubtedly overpowered (at least to some degree), but it's not the only such card in the game like that. The real question is if Shamans are winning too many games. IF they are, then this is probably one of the main cards that should be looked at; but if they aren't, then you don't want to start nerfing stuff and making the class even worse. It's more important to balance the class than to balance cards.

As for me, if I was going to nerf FE, I'd decrease the direct damage to 2. By comparison to Stormwind Commando, who also has a 2-damage battlecry, the Fire Elemental would gain 2 attack and 3 health in exchange for 1 extra cost doing this; that still seems fairly strong.
