    He’s 6’8 and a halfway decent fighter in the AHL. The second he got the better of Martin in such a big moment, everyone wants a piece of him.

    He’s the one who has been challenged every time. And frankly I don’t see him challenging anyone after this ass kicking.

    Also, he’s not a pure plug either. He’s actually a damn good skater, not just for someone his size. Probably NHL average in that regard which you don’t see from someone that big.

    I'm probably going to get shit for this but retiring Chelios's number is so weird to me. Doing it against your rival (who he went to to win two Cups). When Seabrook is arguably the bigger "7" for the team. IDK, I get he's a local and is an all-timer, but it just was weird to watch

    This was a ridiculous shot by Sprong. Guy is easily the most underrated goal scorer in the league when you consider how little he plays.

    Chelios spent 9 years in Chicago, won 2 Norris trophies and finished top 5 I think 4 times there. He is probably borderline retirement. Think Hawks fans just bitter he went to Detroit and had team success there. Chelios had a weird career. Played so long, spent 7+ years on 3 different teams.

    Won a cup in mtl also and he is an afterthought here…he is mostly well known for sleeping with the habs president’s wife

    he is a legend on many different levels

    the weird career is part of why I feel that way

    I guess I just feel like not winning a cup should disqualify you from a number retirement. More of a ring-of-honor type of thing

    Makes no sense. Chelly played 600 games for Chicago and didn’t win shit. Seabrook played 1200 games and won 3 cups.

    Yea I guess he won Cup(s) in Montreal and Detroit and was both those places almost as long and neither would consider retiring his jersey so I get your point. But his years in Chicago were his prime years though.

    they announced today that you have to be retired for 3 years after LTIR. So he's not eligible yet

    I'm hoping they decided to do Chelios because they knew they were retiring 7 anyway

    Don’t disagree. Don’t think either should have their number retired. Put ‘em into the ring of honor or whatever.

    Retiring numbers is such a subjective thing team to team and even sport to sport. Hell going to red wings games is funny because they share an arena with the Pistons. Pistons have retired basically everyone associated with any team that won 1 title, including owners, coaches and non starters. Meanwhile the Wings have some hall of famers who won multiple cups not retired, including most notably Fedorov and a guy like Shanahan

    Fedorov was so good, I think he is underrated because of his personality. Which is pretty dumb

    That was nuts, Imagine a coach trying to pull that off nowadays.

    but that is how good of a hockey player Fedorov was, his skating was elite so he could play any position.

    A lot of goalies shoot like that. You sacrifice lift for power. Pretty effective.

    Kane would score the OT winner. But also Bedard killed the Hawks there. He refused to leave the ice.

    It's wild how good the Hagel trade was for Tampa vs. how bad the Jeannot trade was.

    The lightning tradionally have hit home runs with their deadline deals. Goodrow, Hagel, Coleman, McDonough, etc.

    Jeannot was the first that really blew up in their face.

    Yeah the hit rate the team has had with trades has been unreal, there was bound to be one that bombs. Jeannot has been a running joke in a group text I’m in especially recently with
    some of the trade rumors and how they could use those picks. He’s had injuries but he doesn’t really do much other than fight when he does play.
