I've said all along that stats are half the battle, if only half the battle. They do matter and in Elias' case I was simply showing that from a statistical point of view he shares company with several players who better him in this category that we never think are making the HHOF. Therefore he has to do something to make up for that right? You look at a guy like Brad Richards with a Cup, a Conn Smythe and so far a decent playoff portfolio with some decent runs. To compare Richards to Elias is fairly accurate from a career value standpoint and I can't imagine Richards ever getting into the HHOF.
