Congrats to a great player and a great Hawk. Too bad Wirtz ****ed the team and made it a place nobody wanted to play.

He was one of my favorites back in the day. I really don't care for him anymore, though.

Sums it up well for me

I started to dislike Chelios as a person during 94-95 lockout and his threats against Bettman and his family

Every time I hear about Chelios now, I think of him burning that Cutler jersey. What a dumbass haha

But congrats to him. He was a hell of a hockey player and deserves to be in the HHOF, even if Hawks fans are still butthurt over him being traded to Detroit.

It's not the trade, it's how big an ******* he was well after the fact.

He was an *******, still is an *******, that's just his personality. The photo was the only thing, for me, where it was like, what the hell is wrong with you. Other than that, I loved how he would also parade around with the Cup when the Wings won. That was beautiful and a big F U to this organization. I'm sure he was just being a dick and didn't do it as some form of protest, but I liked it. I liked any reminder of how much better the Red Wings were than the Hawks (as if it even mattered though), any pride Wirtz had died a long, long time ago. Still, got a laugh out of it and hoped someone somehow noticed and felt embarrassed. Maybe Rocky did.

I'm sure that has a lot to do with it, but he was booed pretty relentlessly every time the Red Wings came to the UC. People were pissed off he was in a Red Wings jersey, which is understandable, but we all know that he was traded.

Great achievement for a great player.

Sadly, I remember him as a Red Wing.

Agreed. He's not only the greatest American player ever, but some consider him one of the 30 greatest players ever and one of the 10 greatest dmen ever up there with guys like Brad Park. He won three Norris Trophys and three Stanley Cups. He holds the NHL record with 24 PO appearances, 3 more than any other player. I don't know if our Hawks have that many in the last 40 years!

Chelios, Bourque and Lidstrom are the best defenseman of my lifetime.

He's from Evergreen and the same age as my dad. They grew up and went to boy scouts and played hockey together.

I'll always have a soft spot for Chelios, ********* or not.

I'd like to slam him for leaving the Hawks, but that was a) before my time as a fan tbqh and b) back when the team was run like ****, so can't really blame him for leaving.

Would be a bit disingenuous for me to rail against him.

I don't know the man personally. He may be a complete jerk. However, I haven't seen many players play better in a Hawks uniform. Congratulation, Chris.

I will always remember fondly on Chelios even like other former Chicago stars Jordan and Mark Grace, he turned out to be a *****. I don't care he played as many years in Detroit, I believe the Hawks got the best part of his career and should be remember best as a Hawk.

My 21 year old self is still pissed that he ended up forcing his way to the Red Wings.

My current 35 year old self is more pissed now about the state of the Hawks organization at the time and recognizes that it must have been miserable being in a dead end job with the Hawks.

I was one of the people cheering for him the night the Hawks recognized him and I will "cheer" for him the day he is inducted to the HOF. His career didn't turn out the way I would have hoped when he was with the Hawks but he still had a hell of a career.

Great player, absolute ass clown of a human. Hope he goes in as a Wing cause he shwoed his true colors at the 75th anniversary.
