Question for Hawks fans that are old enough to remember the days of Dino Cicarelli and Al Secord: Understanding that the Red Wings are the biggest traditional rivalry with the Blackhawks, what are your recollections of the battles with the North Stars? Do you think that a similar rivalry can kick off with the Wild (assuming realignment goes through and the Wild pick it up a notch, competitively speaking)?
Speaking as a Wild fan, I could never really feel it with the Oilers, Flames and Canucks...Since the moment Minnesota was awarded the Wild, I've been itching for realignment so we can get into the same division as Chicago, St Louis, and Dallas...would've been nice for Detroit to stick around as well.
I think the Blackhawks rivalry with St Louis & Minnesota can grow as the Redwings are going to be an aging team. Dino Cicarelli yep I remember him. He was a former London Knight way before Bolland & Kane played there. Cicarelli was a beast and was pretty much always playing when Larmer & Savard played matching their intensity.
