Per Rich Hammond over at the Insider, it turns out Patrick Elias had the game-winning puck all along. And now, in exchange for getting it back, they Kings are going to make a donation to a charity of his choice. It doesn't sound like that was a demand of Elias's or anything, but if you ask me, he should be making a concomitant donation to Kings Care Foundation or some other Kings charity.
He is a thief after all.
Ok, maybe that's a bit harsh, but seriously, you can't tell me you don't think there was a little deception there on his part when he said he didn't know where the puck was. I think he knew and he just wanted to make the Kings sweat it out.
