If Wings Win The Cup, Chelios Will Need Some Help To Get His Name On It

from Camwest News Service via the National Post,

Since he played in only 24 regular-season games, Chelios doesn’t qualify for a Stanley Cup inscription. A player must suit up for 41 games or appear in at least one game of the final series to get his name on Lord Stanley’s mug.

There is a second chance, however.

The Wings can, and likely will, petition to have Chelios added to the Stanley Cup list. But that might mean Chelios will require a favour from his old rival, National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman.

“I don’t really care what he says anyway,” Chelios said. “If that’s my biggest worry, I’m doing pretty well. If we win it, I’m not too worried about it. My name is already on the Cup.”
