Chris Chelios did not freak out on Ted Saskin. There were no ugly food fights, no fisticuffs, no accusations hurled. In fact, Chelios admits the meeting between Saskin and the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena Thursday was quite informative. So what took so long, the outspoken veteran wants to know? And why has Saskin not held similar meetings with the other 29 NHL teams in order to educate players on the state of the union -- in this case, the NHL players' union? GET A FEEL "Have a fall tour," Chelios said yesterday. "It seems so simple. I wish Ted would have done this and then let the executive committee and the player reps get a feel for what the players want." Saskin came to Detroit at the request of the Wings after an informal team vote determined that more information was required from the union head. "I think the consensus around the league is that guys need to talk to Ted and get some questions answered," Chelios said.
