    Unity Symbol - ugly chain replaces ugly jacket

    It took me a bit to figure out what was going on when Kelly showed up for the postgame media stint wearing a Flava Flav cast-off. My friend suggested he signed a gangsta rap deal with Def Jam.

    I like how Ference has taken it upon himself to to find something f-ugly and turn it in to a symbol of pride and unity.

    Recchi is sitting at home thinking, Man, I need that chain to accessorize the jacket!

    Here's how reporter Julian Benbow described it in his story about Kelly today:

    [ Kelly's ] reward came in the form of neckwear. After the game he wore a thick padlocked chain wrapped around his neck. He explained that, like the throwback jacket that Andrew Ference bought on eBay last season and became sort of an MVP trophy after each postseason win, the necklace was another one of Ference’s ideas.

    “Andrew made something that symbolizes the team, the chain, try not to be the weak link,’’ Kelly said. “It’s one of those things that you pass out after a good game. It’s one of those things that’s all in good fun.’’

    [Goalie Tim] Thomas said, “He wasn’t the weak link tonight.’’

    I thought Kelly went all NBA on us there for a second.

    I liked the jacket better.

    HA! NBA for sure but the chain would have to be solid gold and a bit bigger :P

    Why couldn't they get a chain from a construction site that doesn't resemble something an agent for prostitutes might wear?

    Why could they get a cool looking something?  

    I wouldn't want to risk being the best player of the game and have to wera that stupid thing around my neck

    I think part of the whole thing is that it's a gag at the same time as being an honor. So finding something that's just bad enough without being over the top absurd is the goal. Ference found a really ugly jacket last year but he could have found something worse (believe it or not) but that wouldn't have worked as well. Same with the chain I think. A rusty hunk of construction chain would be too much.

    I think the Chain is pretty awesome. The Canucks mocked the jacket last year, I wonder if some team will be bold enough to mock the chain...

    More of a Sid Vicious thing. I hope Ference remembered to keep the key.

    Word on the street is Ference had to wrestle that chain away from Rampage Jackson.

    I heard he beat him with the chain until he agreed they could keep it. He was spinning it like a lasso over his head.

    The idea should have left with the jacket.

    I agree with this. The jacket was a cool idea because it was original. Now every team does it. Time to come up with soemthing else.

    I loved the original idea.

    The chain is "Another 48 Hours".

    It just seemed especially absurd on Kelly. Seeing him answer questions straight faced in the post-game made it feel like an SNL sketch.

    I'll take the Bruins' gear over this from the Sabres.  Although it looks good on Ryan Miller.

    That's true.  Perhaps this might serve as Buffalo's team unity symbol.  It's rough 'n ready.  Just like the Sabres.  (I kid.)

    Whatever a team may choose, Bieksa will say the Nucks are too good for that.
