Last week, Red Wings defender Chris Chelios said this of Rob Blake in an interview on a Detroit radio station: "He's in a situation there where there's just no end at the light of the tunnel and he's lost his drive right now. I've been there. I talked to him last time we played him, and he would love to come here."
Blake's response: "I donít know if thatís exactly what was said, so Iíll leave it at that."
Blake said he wasn't upset at all with Chelios for making the comments. When I asked if there's any truth to him losing his drive, he gave a long ``Well ...,'' then said he was still trying and he didn't know any more he can say about that.
I am a big fan of Blake, but that was a weak response.
At any rate, Jakub Kindl and First for Robbie will do.
