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.


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...

Devils - Patrik Elias 348g
Pens - Mario Lemieux 915gp 690g
Rangers - Rod Gilbert 1065gp 406g
Islanders - Mike Bossy 752gp 573g
Flyers - Bill Barber 903gp 420g

Habs - Maurice Richard 978gp 544g
Bruins - Johnny Bucyk 1436gp 545g
Leafs - Matt Sundin 981gp 420g
Sabres - Gilbert Perreault 1191gp 512g
Sens - Daniel Alfredson 389g

Panthers - Olli Jokinen 567gp 188g
Thrashers - Ilya Kovalchuk 594gp 328g
Caps - Peter Bondra 961gp 472g
Bolts - Vincent Lecavalier 351
Canes - Ron Francis 1186gp 382g

Blues - Brett Hull 744gp 527g
Hawks - Bobby Hull 1394gp 604g
Red Wings - Gordie Howe 1767gp 786g
Preds - David Legwand 169g
Blue Jackets - Rick Nash 259g

Wild - Marian Gaborik 502gp 219g
Cannucks - Markus Naslund 882gp 346g
Oilers - Wayne Gretzky 768gp 626g
Avs - Joe Sakic 1378gp 625g
Flames - Jarome Iginla 484g

Sharks - Patrick Marleau 357g
Stars - Mike Modano 1459gp 557g
Coyotes - Dale Hawerchuk 713gp 379g
Kings - Luc Robitaille 1079gp 557g
Ducks - Teemu Selanne 410g

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...

HOF or not he's my standard of what a good hockey player is. complete package, with an emphasis on stick handling, puck protection,and vision. smoothness personified and a +/- machine. a natural skater

I dont know what the NHL thinks about him now but Im certain his contemporaries recognized him as a borderline HOF player/skater

I think he's a cut below Hall of Famer, but there's no shame in that.

Elias is a superstar who sacrificed gaudy personal statistics for winning.

He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

I was thrilled to learn that I apparently witnessed the record-breaking goal live. I just wish I was aware it was the record-breaking goal when it happened. They made no announcement in the arena, and I had lost track of his goal scoring during end-of-semester craziness and the Montreal trip.

Congrats, Patty. Hall of Famer or not, you're still the greatest offensive player in Devils history.

I know what you mean but as a resident of Philadelphia for the last 18 years, the two goals in Game 7 against the Flyers immediately come to mind.

That's playoffs. Not part of the 348.

Congratulations to Elias on goal #348 and couldn't be more fitting to see his buddy and old friend Petr Sykora assist on that record goal.

Hopefully he gets a well-deserved and long standing ovation tonight from the fans in the crowd. He really deserves it.
