Until I took a moment to look at this picture, I didn't realize just how wrong it was. Chris Chelios is Original Six hockey, and not just because he started playing when there were only six teams. Very few players in NHL history can say they were the backbone of 3 Original Six teams. Seeing him in a Thrashers jersey is just wrong.
But then again, there was a time when this picture would have been a laughable thought. It still probably makes a few Blackhawk fans angry.
- Paul Kariya as a Predator/Blue was pretty damn wierd
- Forsberg not in an Avs uniform was slightly saddening
- When I think of Turco/Modano, I think of them shutting down the Oilers playoff chances throughout the early 2000's. Seeing them in a Hawks/Wings jersey will be pretty wierd
- Holmgrem sold Gagne for nothing. Seeing him in TB will be strange.
- Sundin as a 'Nuck
- Messier as a 'Nuck hurts to see. He always will be an Oilers to me.
- After seeing Cujo carry us throught several seasons, seeing him play for the rival flames was depressing.
- Seeing Gretzky in a Kings jersey makes me throw mental darts at a Peter Pocklington picture
EDIT: And I now realize the guy above me has a very similar list. Dammit.
but most of those were with their respective teams for 3-4 seasons. I think this thread was for players who were with a team for less than a season.
