The way I remember Chelios leaving was that it was linked to the Brett Hull debacle. There was a lot of off season talk that he was coming to the Hawks. He was Cheli's best friend, it would have shown some commitment by management to get the franchise back on track, and of course it would have healed some old wounds with the past. Win/Win/Win. Of course, Wirtz and Pulford screwed the pooch and the whole thing fell through. I didn't blame Chelios for wanting to leave after that.

Regarding the photo, whatever the circumstance, he was a tool for wearing that jersey. He needed to show respect to the other guys in that picture
