Patrik Elias still isn't sure what will happen this summer when he is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.
He is New Jersey's all-time leader in goals (375), assists (553) and points (928), but there hasn't been any contract talks yet between him and the Devils. "I don't know what's going to happen, really," Elias admitted. "Sometimes you're hoping for something and it doesn't happen. I understand all sides of it - the business side of it, the ownership issues, and what the team has to do - and if it works out great. If it doesn't, life goes on. Unfortunately, it's a part of hockey." As a long-time New Jersey play it would be odd seeing him wear another sweater and Elias has made it known that he wants to stay.
