Elias doesn’t seem all that different from Alfredsson, to be honest.
--Both will likely have 1,000+ points with one franchise when all is said and done. That's an impressive feat for a low-scoring era. (I'm assuming Elias plays a couple more seasons, but this should be doable.)
--Both have three top-10 scoring finishes. (Elias is currently on pace for a fourth and would very likely have had a fifth had he not contracted hepatitis in 2005.)
--Both are massively respected players who were excellent defensively and performed well in the playoffs. Elias has a better Cup record but he also had more help. Alfredsson gets a boost because he was a captain and the face of a Canadian franchise for more than a decade.
Dunno, I'd put 'em both in. Especially if Elias gets another top-15 scoring finish this year.
