I started following them when my mom, sister and I moved to from Dallas to Boston and I loathed everything about Massachusetts. So in order to brand myself as NotFromThere, I found a Dallas sports team that was on TV fairly often that I could follow, and the Stars were the best of the teams available.
Then I found out they had open practice at Valley Ranch where you could get autographs (and get run over by Modano speeding by) and I was sold.
You need to get your hands on as much video of that series as you can. I don't think you can really appreciate the Cup win unless you experience the teams that came up short leading up to it.
Yeah, I know sadly.. I know but I did live the 90's second hand. When I was 12 I obsessed with the Stars team in the 90's with Muller, Ludwig, Matvichuk, Belfour (fav player), Leths, Langs, Hull, Mo etc. Bought the Nothing Else Matters documentary and watched it about 100 times lol
Also as years went on I tried to learn as much as I could since coming into the league. That's why I needed a hint on the Marchant post...when I got the hint it came to me lol
