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 was at the game when Van Dorp was cut in warmups. They were scraping the blood off the ice for 5 minutes.

In those days, the Stars/Blues/Leafs were uglier games than the Wings.
