Chelios retires

Image yoinked from The Hockey News

After a fantastic career, playing almost exclusively for Original Six teams, the nearly indestructible Chris Chelios has stopped believing (even though Journey told him not to) and announced his retirement. It's been an impressive 26 years of professional hockey for the future Hall of Famer.

Wow. The man has been in the NHL for longer than we've been alive. It's really too bad to see him go, but I know that he's probably come to realize that there's not enough steam left in the old engine. Chelios himself said he's ending his career the way he wants to.

He gets to live in his native Chicago, now that he's working for the Red Wings' front office. If you're wondering why he's not working for the Habs, well...
