from Mark Everson of the NY Post,
When Elias returned from Hepatitis A, which he contracted during the lockout, on Jan. 3, 2006, the Devils were a game under .500 and in serious danger of missing the playoffs. They went 30-9-4 after his return and he had 45 points in his 38 games.
“That was ridiculous,” Elias said. “Don’t expect that from me, even though I’d like to play that way. It’s different things in your body. They’re cutting into you and doing things to you, repairing. It’s different for an athlete.
“It’s two separate issues, and the body reacts totally differently.”
