Took a year off after knee surgery, but it looks like at 40 he won't be able to come back after all.

Played his entire career with the Devs: 1025 points in 1240 games. Hall of Famer, no?

I'd say so. When he was healthy he was a great player.

The salary cap has made it so more guys may play out their careers for one team going forward, but Elias is from an era where guys didn't.

Zetterberg, Kronwall, Doan, Markov, Marleau, Sedins are pretty much the only mid-30s guys still playing for the same team.
