His family clearly doesn't have his best interests at heart.

Maybe, maybe not. There is also other factors that his family may be considering which attribute to their support.

-Like...maybe their non-support would be crushing his life-long dream...the thing that has been the thread of his existence since he was a little boy? What type of husband or dad to they have then without giving it another try. Would he resent them and create a whole swath of family relationship issues?
-Maybe these concussion symptoms will go away permanently like they have with some other athletes?
-Maybe they trust his decision and instincts on what his body is telling him, how he's getting better?
-Maybe they don't understand the seriousness of major concussions, and symptoms long-term, therefore don't realize the risk he is assuming (they are after all from Sweden, and likely don't get to see this injury as much as we do here in the States/Canada due to our detailed exposure to many, equally as brutal sports (e.g. NFL football) and the hundreds of stories we've heard about this wrecking lives and even resulting in death)

I just don't imagine that this is an easy decision and they're like "who cares, the hell with him(dad/husband/son)...let him go play and keep bringing in the big dollars...if he's a bowl of jelly in five years...so be it!"

In Topic: Moving Jimmy Howard

No. We need him as he currently brings more upside than not.
Jimmy may start playing like he has to win a job, rather than playing knowing he's the undisputed starter. We may see a different Jimmy this season...a bit more hungry. Maybe a bit of edge within the locker room.
Challenges Peter daily to play at highest level to compete for starting job.
Regardless of who is #1, having either of them as a back-up is solid. It's awful nice to know that you have a back-up plan come playoffs, especially if your starter is getting worked.

Went to college with one of his daughters. Great family. All of them (including Al) were really down-to-earth and really kind people. RIP Al. Thoughts and prayers to the rest of the family.

In Topic: Adidas Gets NHL Jersey Deal

I'll dedicate my loyalty as a consumer for life...to any company that buys all the Wings jersey sponsorship slots and makes them blank, and matches the same color jersey as they are wearing on any given night. Unless feminine/lady products, I will swear my financial alliance to this company. God help me if the company that did this is a horrible tasting beer...I guess I'd be drinking many for the "the team".

What's to stop Chelios from being a great coach?

Didn't you know!! Every great coach in history came out of the womb with NHL coaching experience and never had to get behind the bench as a rookie. "We all got a break and started somewhere"...that's not true for great coaches though. It's a genetically tested for trait. "Learning the ropes"...nah, not great coaches...these guys were SURE THINGS. Duh!!
