Elias could test market

GM Lou Lamoriello could lose Patrik Elias this summer in the same fashion he lost Zach Parise last offseason. Elias' current contract with the New Jersey Devils expires after 2012-13, and Lamoriello's (habitual) unwillingness to talk extension during the season may push the 36-year-old veteran forward to test the free agent market. The Star-Ledger reports Elias is willing to entertain the idea, in any case.
