Elias is 27. I didn't mean to say Gagné will never be as good as Elias, but frankly, it would be presumptive to say anyone in the league could be the next Elias - he is that good. I simply wanted to say that they're similar players and have similar styles. Elias is a fantastic player, and Gagné could someday become that, but I don't think Gagné will ever carry a team like Elias has the Devils this season. That's not a knock on Gagné, it's just an opinion - I would still love to have Gagné on my team.
