Patrik Elias’ Day Off

A big thanks to Jim Kelley for saying what a lot of people have been thinking: New Jersey Devil Patrik Elias probably has something more than a cold going on. Kelley’s big beef is that it makes Elias look bad, but that implies anyone believes for a second the ailment is really just a cold. Whatever Elias really has, the Post says he’s “slightly hoarse.”
I love how the Devils wait for one of their few offensive weapons to get injured before they get into a shootout with Ottawa.
My pet theory is that Elias took his friend Cameron’s dad’s car into the city to blow off some steam. That’s just me, though.
