Most of the pictures were auctioned (along with seats, banners, you name it) off over a decade ago, though MLSE did retain some & hung them up in private suites, their own offices & so on down at the ACC.... the Forum is mixed commercial now, having retained the crossed stick elevators, a display where centre ice used to be.... but ya, the rest all gone. According to more than a few of the older players, Chicago Stadium was pretty scary. Really bad part of town, very close proximity to a an exceptionally rabid fan base, beyond loud, the dressing rooms in the basement & about 30 steps up or down, the place crawling with rats.... and ya. Ditto on those sentiments about the new buildings. All the same. Corridors of plastic, glass & metal. Without soul. Presence.
