1. For taking Chris Chelios

A red Chris Chelios jersey was the first piece of hockey garb I ever owned. My father bought it for me after he saw how much i loved watching the ‘Hawks, and cheering for Chelios in specific. I know he was traded, and it wasn’t a Johnny Damon post-2004 situation. But, at the ripe age of 12, I was quite unfamiliar with the entire trade/free agency process. When I heard Chelios was going to Detroit, I threw a hockey puck at my bedroom wall. Now much older, I still hate seeing pictures like the one above.
