Yep, Eriksson and two first rounders.

For clarification, the first round picks were used to pick Steve McCarthy and Adam Munro respectavly. Neither of them are with the Hawks anymore.

there was one point during the anaheim game where he kept the puck in 3-4 times, fantastic work

Did anybody hear the VS commentators talking about Chelios after the game last night? They got into a discusion regarding the fact that he has now played the most games of any american player and they ended up agreeing that Chelios was in fact the best american born player in NHL history. I was a bit surprised at first, but when you stop to think about it he really is one of the best all time among the US ranks.

I usually don't mention it, but Chelios has been my second favorite player in the league ever since he came to Motown. Now that #19 is hanging in the rafters, I guess that makes Cheli #1 in my book.

Not to start an argument, but Chelios has always been a prime example of just exactly what I used to think of as a great hockey player - whereas Stevie redefined it and took it to the next level - for me at least.

Certainly, Chelios is destined for the HoF. In the meantime, he is still out there schooling these young whipper-snappers about what it means to be hockey player.

But to give some credit to Chicago, Chelios was 37 at the time. They figured he was washed up and had maybe a year or two left. Eriksson was young and had some potential.

My Dad and I joke that every time the Wings go play Chicago, Chelios probably makes his way up to the Blackhawk front office, lightly knocks on the door and says "hey guys. Just wanted to let you know I'm still playing. Look forward to seeing your guys on the ice tonight :) "

Edit: Double post, sorry.

I noticed that series of plays too. I was very impressed and a little disappointed that the Ducks were being held in their own zone by one 45 year old American player (I'm American) who never scores and skates as fast as the seasons. But then again.

Cheli was probably psyched about the Gathering that is to take place in NYC this summer between him and other immortals to decide who is The One. Because we all know THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!
