    Did anyone see this? Pretty awesome. What a rivalry that was. Amazing skill, teams just dripping with HOFers, fights, genuine dislike.

    They all looked pretty good, particularly Kamensky, Roy, and Jiri Fisher.

    I was huge into hockey in those days.
    It felt like slapshot; all the best and worst of the sport in one place. But there really is no place in a sport for that kind of sillyness. I prefer my fights to be fights and my hockey to be hockey.

    I remember having to chuckle how almost the entire western all star team was Avs and Red Wings. And they had to play together.

    Amazing collection of talent. These fuckin teams had HOFers on the fourth line. I'm not exaggerating. Luc Robitaille was a 4th liner for it Wings and Jari Curry for the Avs.
