    From the Free Press:

    Chelios is competing for minutes with Andreas Lilja and Brett Lebda. Lebda, though, has the advantage of being a puck-mover. Chelios and Lilja, however, are boosts to the penalty-killing units. Babcock plans to use the exhibition season, which resumes tonight with a game against Florida, to mull the third pairing.

    I think the oldest player in the league will beat out Lilja, and barring injuries, will be paired with Lebda.

    A cadaver could beat out Lilja.

    Chelios is set to pass Stevie Y in games played in the next few weeks, and apparently he isn't thinking about quitting any time soon.

    After 1,501 games, Chelios is just warming up - 12/06/06 - The Detroit News Online

    The man is a freak of nature.

    Its also pretty impressive that he has only played for 3 teams in his 23+ seasons.

    Seven with Montreal, 9 with Chicago and now is now in his 8th with the Wings.

    Is there any doubt that he is a lock for the HOF?

    What I like is that he is so passionate about the game. His activity with the NHLPA is part of his off ice legacy as a leader and steward for the game.
