Not sure who else was watching the post game show after yesterday’s game, but here was an exchange Patrik Elias had with a reporter:
Q: “Couple of days off to regroup, try to find some more offense?”
Elias: “I don’t know what we’re going to try and find here, you know. We (literally?) gotta get back to winning, and just kinda having fun and, um, you know we, when we do that, when we trust each other and we have guys that, um, every, you know, we are not, we are not, we are not the same players everyone here so it’s a, we have got to realize that, and some guys gonna make a play, but, ah, at the same time we all gotta be accountable and when we do that we have everyone going and, we gotta get back to that.”
Not sure who this was in reference to.. perhaps Ilya Kovalchuk? We know that Elias was not happy that he showed up a few days late to training camp, but it seems like Elias has a bone to pick with someone.
Maybe I am looking a little to deep into this but, as I was watching with a friend, we both agreed that the comments were mighty cryptic.
Did you hear the comment? What do you think reading the above quote? Am I looking into it a little too much?
