Patrik Elias admits playing for another team would tarnish his career

It seemed strange hearing Patrik Elias call the Devils “they” and “them” as he cleaned out his locker at Prudential Center Monday morning.

But Elias, who turns 40 Wednesday, said it wasn’t a slip of the tongue indicating that his career was over. He’d still like to come back for more more season.

“They played way more than I did. I didn’t help them that much, so that’s why I said ‘they’ and ‘them,’ ” Elias explained.
