I agree. Elias is the face of the Devils outside of Broduer and Stevens. Lou Lam didn't decide to keep him and ditch Arnott and Sykora just cause he was good, but because he is AMAZING and he knows the value Elias has to the organization and the team. When the A line broke up, Patty was still able to put up amazing numbers. He is their main cog on offense like Iggy is for the Flames. His supporting cast, isn't nearly as good as Nazzy's. Not saying his is bad, but just saying he doesn't have a Todd Bertuzzi on his line.

Patty is a clutch performer when it comes to the cup, and he knows what it takes to win it. How many cup rings does he have? How many does Nazzy have? That's why I give the edge to Elias, but it is close.

Just imagine this, if you were to switch the linemates who would do better?

Naslund-Gomez-Gionta

Elias-Morrison-Bertuzzi
