But you shoudn't be...like I've said, we got Elias' best and we saw him get to four Finals, two of which his team won. He doesn't have unfinished business here. He may decide he'd like to win one last Cup, and there could be a stacked team that decides it could use veteran insurance, a guy like Elias who is still capable of significant contributions, and who knows...if Elias decides he really wants that one last shot that he may not get here, he may even be willing to take a discount to play for such a team. I can't blame him one bit if that's the route he wants to take. And it won't cheapen his Devils career one bit.
I want his career to be 100% Devil, for selfish and legacy purposes.
I would not blame him if he leaves, but I would be heartbroken personally.
He is the greatest Devil forward EVER. I can't see anyone ever coming close to his accomplishments in helping make this franchise a perenial championship caliber. Playing a strong defensive game, sacrificing individual points, yet always being in the top three in team scoring regardless of who he plays with. #26 should be the first and only forward # to be retired.
