Chelios Coming To Broadway?

I suggested in a prior post that Chris Chelios manning the blueline for the New York Rangers was intriguing for me. The 47-year-old could serve as a sort of mentor to the solid crop of young blueliners the team has. Now it appears that Chelios does have interest in playing for New York. His buddy Jeremy Roenick says here that Chris Chelios has told him he wants to play for the Rangers. Chelios has played for only "original six" teams during his career: Montreal, Chicago and Detroit. The U.S. born defenseman is a first ballot hall-of-famer and one of the all around best defenseman I have seen. A one-year deal - and who knows maybe a coaching role with the team thereafter - would be a very good investment.

Chelios was once described by coach Mike Keenan as the only player that could play all 60 minutes of a game without a break - he's that much of a fitness freak.
