Terrific forward who realized and embodies how important it was to play well in all zones.

 

Looking forward to eventually seeing his jersey hanging in the rafters in a couple years.

Elias is a great talent. The best Devils forward of all time. I really hope he gets into the HHOF. He deserves it. A true class act who always played the game the right way, never foregoing prudent defensive play or being a team player in order to boost his stats.

Patty has a few things going for him as far as the HOF goes. First, he did it all with one team. Just ask Dave Andreychuk and Pierre Turgeon if being journeymen affected their chances or not. Both of them played for six different teams. Secondly, he has won two Stanley Cups. Not winning a Cup can be a major factor if a player is on the statistical cusp of HOF standards. Turgeon never won a Cup and yet had an astounding 1327 points in 1294 games.  

 

Patty will also be remembered as a great two way player, something the HOF committee will most likely recognize to some extent.

 

That said, Adam Oates got in as journeyman and non-Cup winner. 1000+ assists always helps though. He also created an identity as a tandem with Brett Hull on the Blues, Cam Neely on the Bruins and with Petr Bondra during his time on the Caps. I have to think that got him over the hump.
