Food for thought... Ottawa was often a high-octane team, the Devils were usually not. Alfredsson led the team in scoring by more than a point just once, in 2010 (10 points). Elias' best margins on his team were 13, 9, 7 and 7 points. This is an indication that he was often better than his linemates, while Alfredsson was often only on par with his. I wouldn't say they carried him or anything silly like that. But they did help him score more. Elias' linemates didn't really do that; he was helping
score more, if anything.
