Chris Chelios was notorious for hitting people in the face with his stick. Come off it everybody. You want to talk about "old time hockey"? Here you go. Stick work. As old timey as it gets.
'Old Time Hockey' would've seen a line brawl with Roussel getting bloodied...Surprisingly nothing happened immediately after that.
I have some fond memories of watching Chelios getting his ass kicked by Gerard Gallant, and by a few others as well.
Chelios wasn't as tough as some would like to think...His only fight victories came up against guys like Fedorov, or Robitaille, but like you said - he was known more for his cheapshots.
