And let's be honest. The Hawks proposed conference looks to be the weakest conference, both now and in to the future. There is only one team in that conference that would be considered a consistent big spender and that is the Hawks.

Where look at where Detroit is going, there's more big money teams. Eventually Montreal and Toronto will right the ship and that will both make it harder for Detroit to make the playoffs - and also advance when they do.
1990 really sucked as a kid. I thought the Hawks had the Oilers with series 2-1 in Conf finals

I was really excited by idea of Hawks/Bruins

Didn't know much about Bruins as a kid at time outside of the hockey cards I had

But as a kid there jersey's were great and it seemed you always got a Lemelin or Moog card in every pack of cards
