It's becoming abundantly clear he just wants to hang on and play until he's 50.

Kudos to him for being in the shape he is to still hack it on an NHL roster.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Sweet!
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Can't wait to see him out there.

Hope they can make a playoff push, although it's unlikely.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Great news! I would love to see Cheli go for Howe's record.

All the best and great success!

OK, but I wonder how he's going to like the concept of retiring as a Thrasher. Might there be another year for him?

Chelios is done the only reason teams are keeping him around is for his leadership and experience for the kids to learn something.

Good for Chelios. Too bad a goal went in off of him. Kinda funny. They have been scratching the hell out of Slava, wonder if it's performance, personal, or a little bit of both? Did he get s***ty with management after Ilya was traded or something?

Does anyone think that he is being a little selfish by going back to the NHL instead of be there for his two sons in the midwest?

I understand you want to play competitive hockey as long as possible, but for starters you aren't competitive in the NHL anymore and it would be responsible to focus your attention on your kids who are getting into the minors and such.

I'm not a parent, so I might not have any idea what I'm talking about, but as a son it meant a lot to have a dad there for support.

We're all selfish by default, that's natural. I don't see him being any more selfish that looks like he's abandoning family or friends or whatever.

If you do something you love doing, keep doing it for as long as you can I always say. Of course he has family and other things to consider, but it probably helps that his sons are probably fairly grown up now that they are probably understanding they should try to find something to make a living at and enjoy doing as well for as long as possible.

Well the thing is he would do much better staying with the Wolves (his point totals weren't too shabby during his time there), keep playing hockey competitively, help out young prospects mature, AND be able to spend more time with his sons.

I'm not trying to label him as a horrible guy, just that I don't really understand the change except simply to play in the NHL again.

(yes I am aware I gave him props before but I just thought of this situation)

Understood. I think more/less he's probably talked about over the past year or whatever since he got released by Detroit that he wants to play in the NHL again if he could. So... As hard as it could be to watch him these last few years he's still got some game to play in the NHL and he's just an absurd freak of nature when it comes to workout regimine, so I don't blame him for trying to play at the highest level as long as he can as long as his conditioning/stamina can hold up.

He's got to be in great shape to still be able to play. He's going to live until he's 100. And maybe stop playing hockey around then too. Good for him. :thumbup:
