This is a follow-up to my Part I article, regarding Detroit's statement that the NHL's most experienced defenseman ever will not be offered a new contract. As I stated in that article, there are a lot of reasons to believe he will sign somewhere—I would place the odds of him playing at least one more year at 4:1.
The following 11 teams are the most likely destination for Chris Chelios, and they are listed in the order of probability from least to most. (The odds of him landing on one of the other 19 teams combined is less than 1:100.)
Chelios’ career statistics:
GP: 1,644, G: 185, A: 763, +/-: +352, PIM: 2,891, GW: 31, S%: 5.1
