Provincial Thoughts On Chelios

I guess the "Chris Chelios is really frigging old, but still playing and playing well" stories are going to pop up most game days, in most opposing papers. Today's? The Calgary Herald.
Still the ultimate anarchist/rebel/villain. The Jack Nicholson of hockey. And like bad Jack, he's taken the metamorphosis from leading man to character actor in stride. Even if some critics might argue he'd best be displayed in a Drumheller exhibit than on the Red Wings' blueline, he doesn't feel like a fossil. "My age,'' Chelios sighs. "That's all anybody seems to want to talk about these days. Thank gawd Dom (Hasek) is around. With all that grey hair, he makes me look good.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
