Close distance? Wha?
I'll agree with Kiwi on these points. WPG will be about the same (driving) distance as Chicago, our closest neighbor. And I thought quite a few of our games with the Nucks and Eddy were pretty memorable. Like the "Rypien Incident," and that PIM record we set against the Oilers toward the end of the season.
That doesn't mean I won't get excited about playing Chicago and St. Louis more often, though.
