Report- Chris Chelios To ESPN

from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post,

ESPN is adding another Hall of Famer to its forthcoming NHL coverage, The Post has learned.

Chris Chelios will join Mark Messier as part of ESPN’s top studio team, according to sources. ABC/ESPN and TNT will take over the national coverage of the NHL next season. ABC/ESPN will have four of the ensuing seven Stanley Cups.

ESPN and TNT have been like franchises signing free agents. After TNT landed Wayne Gretzky, ESPN countered with Messier – and now Chelios.

Chelios, 59, won the Cup three times – twice with the Red Wings and once with the Canadiens. Chelios has worked for ESPN before as an analyst on the World Cup of Hockey.

It would never happen in the house of the Mouse, but I thought the Babcock and Sharpe combo were pretty good this year in the playoffs.
