The return of Chris Chelios in my opinion is more important than signing Curtis Joseph. Chelios proved that he still had game last year. We also got him for a somewhat reasonable price, 2 yrs and 6.5 mil a season. This is a guy we desperately needed back. With Olausson retiring, Duschene not being back, and Slegr not being back, we will be playing our young guys: Max Kuznetsov and Jesse Wallin. Jiri Fischer became a great defenseman last year through the help of Chris Chelios' teachings. Hopefully, Cheli can do the same thing for Wallin and Kuznetsov. Signing Chris was huge in our chances at repeating our Stanley Cup Championship.
