I'm talking post Rolston/going forward from now on.

I'm kind of not sure what the hell you're taking about.
My beef is that you've got a problem with Elias, yet no worries with Rolston at all. Yet I showed you that they're the same player with around the same contract. People are willing to offer these numbers to guys like Patty and Rolston and I'd rather have them on my team than on anyone else's. Lets face it, they don't score because they play here, especially Elias. No one has come here and scored at a high offensive pace. I bet Ovechkin himself could become a Devil and not crack a 100 points.
