I commented over at ESPN Insider about a Halloween-scary rumor that Chris Chelios could be a good fit for the Rangers (see the “NHL Rumors…” suggested link to the right). Not…a…good..idea. I remember the 47 year old getting blown past by Teemu Selanne for a short handed goal in the playoffs. Now, that was ugly. But what do you expect for a professional hockey player even older than me? (Okay, much older.) It can’t be a good idea.
I quoted Chelios’ 2008-9 GVT and his VUKOTA projection over at ESPN Insider. I’ll admit that his ESOR/ESDR/ESTR of -0.51/+0.71/+0.21 weren’t awful last regular season, though it was in a smallish sample of 281 minutes of ESTOI.
I’ll go with GVT on this one.
