Congrats Patty on 348

40 posts in this topic

Someone had to start it. So, congrats Patty on all the goals. You are now the unequivocal Devils offensive statistical leader. It's amazing that through all that defensive hockey you still became the all time leader.

One of the most underrated players in the NHL IMO. Solid player all around. He really earned this one. Congratulations to him.

Hall Of Famer in my mind.

And Chico's. Hope you guys are right. One or two more cups wouldn't hurt.

Elias will fall in the hard luck group of players that will be denied the Hall of Fame despite being excellent players for a long time. The scoring numbers aren't always among the top players in the league, but Elias is one of the greatest defensive forwards of all-time.

If he wins 4 cups and scores 500 goals (both reasonable), I think it COULD be enough.

In order for him to score 500, he'd have to average 30 goals for 5 more seasons. In other words...not happening.

Yeah, there is no chance he scores 500 goals. He has an outside shot at 1000 points, but he's 155 points away, and would probably have to play 250+ games to do that.

Congrats to patty, one of my top five devils players of all time.

Like some have stated before he only has a chance of making the hof if he gets 1000 points.

He will def get his number retired though.

Yeah. I somehow got 348 and 398 confused. I knew he had 348, but did the math for 398. Bit of a difference. Yay studying for grad school final while working full time. This will be one of many times I sound like an idiot between now and Thursday.

Underrated and our best player for the last 2 years.. DeBoer said it best upon seeing Elias leave practice with an injury.. "My life flashed before my eyes."

And I love the way he plays the game. Top 10 defensive forward ever.

Elias is the reason I became a Devils fan years ago, over the years as players like Zajac and Parise have stepped up Elias kind of took a back seat but he really has been the best player on the team the past couple of seasons and it will be hard to imagine this team without him.

You know, I always believed this to be true. But as of the last couple years I have started to realize that the league does recognize how good Patty has been. I actually think he'll go into the hall of fame. If he can get another cup before the end of his career it will leave the voters with a recent memory of his greatness.

definitely my favorite player of all time...sadly he is so underrated around the league and even in czech republic people do not realize how great player he was and still is. for example in yesterday sportnews they do not even mention what he acomplished, but of course they told us about jagr and his huge loss to the bruins :(

Another 58 goals and he's beating Rangers all time leader Rod Gilbert who played from 1960 to 1978

i think Elias could score another 90-100 goals until the end of his career if he's not getting injured, he's on pace for 30something this season, could repeat next year and and maybe 2 other 15-20 season after that... i think its fair, could endup with about 450goals in his carreer... its a stretch but not impossible

couldnt sleep and i was curious to see where he was standing compared to other team leaders... at first i did the research for myself but then i thought that i could share, just in case someone else care...

i guess it's not bad considering that most of those guys we're either elite players or playing at the time when guys were scoring like 90 per seasons and goalies had magazines taped on their legs lol

im hoping to see Parise leading the devils in goals one day...
