Allow me to pile on..

Sam already covered this - but seriously, fuck Chris Chelios.


The idea that Chelios would come here as a player is laughable. He hasn't been a relevant player for years now and the only thing I remember him doing last year (other than sitting out the entire finals) was him repeatedly slashing cross-checking Kane in a corner at the last home game against Detroit while the entire UC screamed for his head. In case he doesn't realize, we've got a bit of a youth movement going on here and I don't think it makes much sense for him to be on the ice while hawks warm up to "Youth Gone Wild" - scratch that.. lets strive to never have Skid Row play at Hawks game ever again. His 12 points in 69 games don't do much to really show he's got anything left in the tank either..

His "just somehow maybe involved with the Blackhawks" quote is worse than the idea of him actually wearing the Indian head sweater. In case he doesn't get it - we wanted Bowman because the guy is a fucking hockey genius. He can help the front office find the right pieces to win a cup. Chelios at best could show Keith the best way to throw out some cheap elbows..

You broke your promise to us Chris.. stay in Detroit.. move to Malibu.. but don't come back here. There's a fucking reason we boo whenever you hit the ice...

Fuck Chelios. For me, anything good he ever did as a Hawk was erased after those repeated slashes to Kane.

I wish the rest of that line hadn't sat back and watch him do it to Kaner. I was waiting for someone to pound him.

I think technically those were cross checks.

See, it makes me so crazy thinking about it I can't even explain it right.

You're right Nick - I was going off memory without looking it up but I was a few beers deep at that point anyway.
