8. january 2012 / PATRIK ELIAS…1,000 GAMES
I just finished watching Devils game against the Panthers, where Patrik Elias played his 1000th game. Like so many other nights in his career, Patrik was the best player on the ice, and played like a 16-year veteran that he is. Smart and solid. I remember him coming up from Albany and joining me and Randy “the Rocket” Mckay, and he played with us most of the year. When Patrik became an all-star, we decided it must have been our guidance and leadership which propelled Patty to stardom.
We were wrong.
