But for a guy who said he'd never play for Detroit because he hated them so much he sure is taking his time leaving after playing a full decade there and then continuing to work for the organization.
This is exactly what happened and why wouldn't he want to stay in Detroit?

Mike Ilitch has been better to Chelios than any other owner he has played for, the fans in Detroit love him and his kids have done great in the Detroit are. Jake and Dean are thriving at MSU and he has successful business in the Detroit area.

Sounds to me like he found himself a place where he is appreciated
