always one of my favorite players and gave one of the best one liners of all time.

When he was with the oilers and an ex-girl friend of a former nhl player hadan aids scare due to another ex-boyfriend--the media was asking all thje players what they did to protect themselves.

Gelinas was 18 or 19 at the time and his comment--partly due to his broken english was "Well, I haven't had sex yet, but when I do I will use a condom" something along those lnes--it was a good message for a por athlete to send--but it amused me at the time

Flames Fans will ALWAYS remember Gelly as the Elimantor for all his series ending goals in 04.

We haven't gotten past the first round without him

I've always liked Gelinas when he played in Calgary his family went to to the school my mom taught at she even had some of his kids in her class, he was a nice guy they gave us a bunch of free tickets and stuff it was pretty cool for me at the time since i was only 14

When we had a 'Heroes' day when I was in Grade 4, I wore my Oilers jersey and taped a #20 and the 'Gelinas' name on the back of my jersey because he was, by far, my favourite player, on my favourite team, on my favourite line ('The Kid Line').

Indeed. He also scored the OT goal vs. the Leafs that put the Hurricanes into the 02' finals.

Nice to see him back in the NHL.

One of the handful of NHL players I have interacted with. Without a doubt one of the most gracious nicest professional athletes I have met
