Sounds to me like he found himself a place where he is appreciated
Well I can think of many reasons why I wouldn't want to stay in Detroit, but Chelios said himself he'd never play in Detroit, that's how much he hated them. Then he goes and does just that. It's not like the fans were the ones that turned their backs on him, it was the ******* of an owner. I'm sure there were plenty of other teams that would've been happy to take Chelios but he went to the one team he said he never would.

I don't think any Hawk fan could blame him for leaving, but going to Detroit was just a slap in the face.

And I'm still not sure how any of this negates the hypocritical thought process of Wings fans who think it's classless to boo one player, but seemingly ok to boo another.
