Red Kelly's #4 going to the rafters

Recommended Posts

Sad about Red. He did look very rough at the number raising- like he had a stroke recently or something. He was always very sharp, even well into his 80s, so it was clear that something had happened to him pretty recently. I give the guy a **** of a lot of credit. To do what he did at forward and defense (and in the original six era, to boot) is truely remarkable. He is a very underrated player, but it was nice that he got to see the number retired. His family looked really choked up about it too. You could tell it meant a lot to all of them. Kudos to Chris Ilitch for finally righting that wrong.
