Elias on radio, Devils broadcast.


Recommended Posts

At this point, the second it looks like the team isn't (not necessarily mathematically because that is late) going to make the playoffs he should just come play. Like a dude filling in on a men's league team and whether he is 100% game ready mentally or not. It's Patrick Elias...he's earned it.

They should retire his number on St. Patrick's Day next season. 

The Devils must sign him by March 1 if he is to play this season.  He indicated that possibly the heart wasn't there for him to come back. I always like Elias and wish him the best with what

Man I hope he sticks around with the organization after he retires from playing.

If he were to announce by March 1, I would think there's enough time to get it in before the end of the season. But if not, October/November at the latest.

 

Its not like they have to build him a statue...

Right that's not gonna happen. Not enough time to milk the night for season ticket and sales purposes. It will be next season and it'll be on an otherwise dead attendance night against a dead attendance opponent like Arizona or Vancouver or someone like that.

You're saying if he announces his retirement before this March 1st you think they'll retire his number before the end of the season?  I'd almost venture to say there's no chance of that happening.  Absolutely no reason to rush it.  They would want to plan it out properly, and rightfully so.  Dude deserves a nice ceremony and not something hastily put together.  Just because it might feel like he's been retired already now for a little while since he hasn't played in a season or two, doesn't mean that once it's official it should happen as soon as possible.  Besides, these types of events are usually done best early on in the season when the hype is fresh and fans are eager to attend games.  Not saying that a celebration for him wouldn't sell out anyway, but teams typically prefer to do them in the early stages of a season if you ask me.  They'd rather have the second half of the season with less events and milestone nights, so they can simply just focus on the games at hand and (hopefully) the stretch run into the playoffs.

Precisely.

 

Obviously the reasons you listed are mostly money-oriented, but even if they did it against an opponent that would draw a good crowd anyway (Rangers, Flyers, Capitals etc), it should still be done and planned in advance with enough time to put something nice together.

A Patrik Elias ceremony (complete with jersey retirement) carefully planned out will be as great as Marty's jersey retirement.  That one was awesome.

Something hastily thrown together will likely turn into Ken Daneyko Day, Part Deux.  No thanks to that.  Next season will be just fine.  Wouldn't mind if it was in mid-October or so, where the days are still somewhat long and you could actually have some solid outdoor pregame festivities.

If he retires and has his night he will wear a suit or a shirt only one Is that right? If yes how do you buy or if his jerseys?

 

Not one of Patty's jerseys, he's talking about buying a game-used jersey of one of the players playing in the game.

A Zacha would be cool if you're going to get one from that night. They have the Czech connection. And if Zacha turns out to be a special player *fingers crossed* it could kind if be a passing of the torch type moment.

He will wear that same medium blue, tightly fitted suit he seems to wear every other time he's at the Rock.

I think Patty will be announcing his retirement.

Looking that way. At this point, I say bring him back, let him do whatever he can do and then let him have his moment on the ice at the last home game.

With Elias gone I feel like an era of the NJ Devils and myself are over. I enjoyed the Devils win of 1995, 2000, and 2003 but we have sucked since than because of many reasons. I wonder if Elias being done it means I am done with the Devils. For me its has been a great 34 year run. I am from Boston might be time to go back to the Bruins I was following a NJ team since I live in NJ.

For me his retirement because of injury is sad. He and Claude were my favorites. Devils don't screw up his retirement and  retirement of his number and respecting him with a terrific send off. I hope he gets a job with the Devils. 

It is sad, but he's almost 41. He was nearly finished anyway. Not that it makes it better.

What? Don't even know where to begin with this bullsh!t. 

There's a Penguins bandwagon due in 3 minutes with a Blackhawks bandwagon service due every half an hour. 

BYE!

Holy sh!t are you kidding me... So that's it, the team sucks now, an era is over time to jump ship and root for the Bruins? Good, go. fvcking go. You won't be missed. You're obviously not a Devils fan, so GTFO.

No offense, but that's some fairweather fan sh!t right there. I could easily jump ship and root for the Blue Jackets who are one of the best teams now (and right up the highway from me), but after following the Devils so long they just feel like "my" team. Despite living in and being from Ohio. You have to take the good with the bad when it comes to sports. 

Also, they didn't suck it 2012. ;)

I'll also add, that's the most retarded logic ever.
