I Saw Chelios at HealthSouth.

Yeah.. It was pretty crazy. I went to the HealthSouth rink to try out for teams there and saw Mitch Kupchak (sp?) and Chelios.. I feel like a big-timer. Anyway, I Chelios sitting there watching the little kids skate. Nobody was there.. It was late at night, so thats why I went up to him. I don't wanna be annoying.. I'm sure he gets lockout questions every day.. Anyway I wen't up to get an autograph, and he talked to me for a quick sec. And as I was leaving I wanted to get out a good joke, so he'd be like "Oh, at least that kid was funny," and not "annoying little s**t." So I did my best, and came up with "Alright, now Im gonna get my 'cap' signed by Bettman."

He kinda looked at me.. I smiled to let him know I was joking, and he just kinda chuckled.. Hey I tried.. When am I gonna see him again anyways? Anybody have any better lines?

I ended up skating with his kid later that night.

Wonder why he was in LA. We don't need any aging defencemen.

I think he has a place in Malibu or something... maybe Manhattan... I think he and Luc are neighbors (maybe not) although you would have never known it during the '93 cup finals.

With Shaq gone The Lakers needed toughness on the team. Kupchak is signing Chelios to a mid level excpetion for 5 mil which is more than he'd get in the NHL.

He's been here every year for the past 12 years. He used to skate at the Ice-O-Plex in Van Nuys during the summer too. He's always cranky.

Do you guys ever seem to notice that alot of hockey players (not Kings or Ducks) seem to train or live in Socal or LA. I kinda find it odd. Example, I was strolling through NHL team web sites and noticed example that Belak from Toronto and Matt Johnson either live here in the Summer or often visit or train in Califorina. Just a few examples and Cheilos is another. Just a random thought

Chelios spent his young adult, (Jr. High/High School??), years living in San Diego after his family moved here from Chicago.

Seems reasonable enough to me that he'd choose sunny Southern California as the place to make his off-season home.

I don't think its that odd. If I lived in Edmonton or Toronto or somewhere else cold during the season, I'd probably want to spend my summer nice and warm. Plus for a lot of those guys they might be living near where they grew up. Where for the guys on the Kings they spend all winter here enjoying the nice weather and summer is a time for them to go back home and see the family. A lot of NHL players train with this one trainer whose name is escaping me right now. As for Matt Johnson, he used to be on the Kings and probably likes the area a lot.

Chelios played for the BLACKHAWKS in 1993, not the Canadiens.
