Nothing recent, but the 37 Hawks will forever have the title of greatest upset.

I remember dirk graham getting called for cross checking and he didnt even make contact with the guy. That was the worst officiating i have ever seen in my life.
I remember the Hawks taking a lot of stupid penalties and then watching the North Stars burn them on the power play. Typical of a Keenan coached team they played like a bunch of cement heads who couldn't keep their cool when it mattered the most.

I'm missing someone, oh yeah the cup winning goal scorer. The Captain. Koivu.

You didn't expect them there. I know I didn't

Lemieux and Carbonneau is still debatable wether they belong in the HOF or not.

They may not have been favorite to win it all, but still a very good team that was better than some of the teams being named here.
