1. He played in montreal prior to Chicago and Detroit where he set his Career high in points and won his first Stanley Cup

2. He played in Montreal for 7 seasons. Chicago for 9 seasons and Detroit for 10 (would have been 11 had it not been for the lockout) *the 9th Chi and 1st Det season were split*

3. When he was traded to Detroit he was disgusted, he said he would never play for the Red Wings, and he left the city as an owner of one of the most well known bars in Detroit and is a proud member of the Detroit community

4. He retired into the Red Wings Front office and will likely enter the hall of fame as a Red Wing. He also won 2 Stanley Cups with the Wings so I see no reason why it would be a problem that he is a Red Wing?

He shouldn't even be on a "legends" team, sure he's a hall of famer but legend?

Even Paul Coffey would've been better.

I know he has played for a few teams, but when I think of Chelios I think of the Chicago Blackhawks

Um, yes. I know. I'm saying that if Chelios is remembered as a legend he should be remembered for his days with the Hawks, not the Wings. Sure he won a couple Cups in Detroit but he wasn't the player he was with the Wings that he was with the Hawks.

YES!

This is the reason for my love for Chicago sports. It all started with this game.

Definitely, I mean I can understand Bourque since he is the all time scoring leader for defensemen (although Coffey did have a higher PPG average), but if they're going with 2 "legend" defensemen, what about Orr or Leetch just to name a few?

Bobby Orr....what a class act.

He's a pleasure to listen to when he gives an interview. For who he is/was, how humble and classy he is, is very refreshing. I can't really think of anyone better to represent the NHL.

I don't really want to knock this Legends idea until I see how its fully implemented.

I also like the valid arguments/discussion of who should be in, and who shouldn't, and whatnot.

I guess, my feeling is, if your going to do a legends team- I definately think 1, 2, 3, heck a full shift of players from each team/franchise should be used. There are just too many great players over the years. So if your going to do something like this- do it big.

As I said though, I will wait to criticize until I see how it fully works.

3 players from each franchise? I think that's WAY too many.

For me, a legend is one of the greatest players ever. Having a full team (20-ish players) is about right, if anything a little too large. Having 90 legends would be so watered down.

This has been my point, if they wanted to do this then they should have gone big with it i.e. classic teams for each franchise. It'd be awesome to do something wacky such as the 95-96 Panthers vs the 80s dynasties. Now THAT would hold my interest. Right now it seems all we're getting is CAPs with the correct cyber faces.

I like Chris Chelios, but he's been in the last several NHL games. He was even in NHL 11 (default rosters). I like Gretzky and Bourque, but I do have a minor beef with Chelios in the game.

I was still holding out some hope that there will be a "legend" for every team (which appears unlikely), and like plaidchuck said, I'd find having classic teams MUCH cooler of an option. That's one of the main reasons I loved the 2k games; they had classic teams, and even if you had to fill in the name, you knew it was them.
