Chelios' Chili House of Death

Chris Chelios + Restaurants = Chaos.

This wasn't simply breaking dishes, however. This is one for the 'strange but true' files.

From TSN.ca:
DETROIT (AP) - Two people were found stabbed to death Tuesday morning at a sports bar owned by Detroit Red Wings defenceman Chris Chelios, police said.

The victims, both employees of Cheli's Chili Bar, were found shortly after 9 a.m. on the restaurant's second floor, said police spokeswoman Yvette Walker.

"We believe, just based upon the information right now, that it is a former disgruntled employee that may be responsible for these two murders," police chief Ella Bully-Cummings told the Detroit Free Press.

Police were questioning other employees who were in the restaurant at the time. The three-story building sits next to Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers.

"We are deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred at our establishment this morning," Chelios said in a statement. "Our hearts go out to the families of the victims _ they were wonderful employees and were part of our family."

Chelios opened the sports bar and restaurant in 2005. The restaurant, which has a banner honouring former Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman hanging from an exterior wall, had been expected to have a busy night Tuesday because of a ceremony at Joe Louis Arena honouring Yzerman.

Will you be posting a comment on the probable relegation of SVK in WJCU20, along with your view on the current state / and or / future of Slovak hockey?

The team SVK fielded in Grand Forks was very decent even though it finished 5th. Should anything be read into the performance this year?
Does Pavel Datsyuk work for Chelios?
