07:25 AM ET 07.10 | Chris Chelios can now add first-ballot Hall of Famer to a career of almost overwhelming success and longevity. He finished with 1,651 games. He produced 948 points, and 2,891 penalty minutes during a career that began in 1983 and ended in 2010. He won three Stanley Cups, and three Norris Trophies. ... Chelios displayed his typical blunt personality Tuesday, when he was asked about his relationship with commissioner Gary Bettman. During the 1994-95 lockout, Chelios infamously suggested that Bettman and his family should worry about their well-being. Chelios was asked about the incident, replying, as only he could: "Let's not mention that name on this call. This is a good day."

I forgot he played for the Thrashers. Odd choice for a picture. Kinda like using a picture of Gordie Howe in a Houston Aeros uni.

That really makes Bettman look small. Oh, wait

That's awesome. Watch drawfus try to get his first ballot recounted....

no, because they both played full seasons here. No disrespect was meant to either club.

I always thought that the the Thrashers logo was kind of bizarro.

Didn't Jagr play like 2 years in Washington?

Didn't realise that

I always thought it looked like a picture of former Ohio Congressman James Traficant's hair do. :-)
