Thanks for the interview David and rj. They are one of the best parts of this site.
Man, I'll never forget those Hawks-Stars battles. I had season tix at the old Met and the Saturday night/Sunday night "home and home" matchups were classics. A couple of times my buddies and I decided after a Saturday nght game in Bloomington that we'd drive down to Chicago for the Sunday night game at the great old Chicago Stadium. Those games were great .... the organ, cool knowledgable fans and two tough teams. But God, I hated that horn they blew everytime the Hawks scored.
Peluso is a cool guy and was a pretty good player too. He threw those lefts with abandon and fared pretty well in an era where every team had three or four legitimate badasses.
