It’s time for another edition of the Chicago Blackhawks roundtable, and this one talks about one of the NHL’s oldest meetings

You know how you feel about the St. Louis Blues today as a Chicago Blackhawks fan? Most of those emotions are probably negative. Maybe the same could be said for the Nashville Predators. Even the Minnesota Wild, Winnipeg Jets or Colorado Avalanche.

But what about the Detroit Red Wings? Do Chicago Blackhawks fans still consider these two Original Six foes to be rivals? That’s one of the questions we’re out to answer today, albeit with a small sample size.

Yes, it’s time for the latest Chicago Blackhawks roundtable, and one of our topics this week is Blackhawks-Wings. The teams meet up Tuesday at the United Center for one of just two meetings this season. Gone are the days of five or six games between the teams stewing bad blood on and off the ice.

Our other question, an area of focus throughout this season, looks at youngsters in the Blackhawks organization. So here are the two official questions for this roundtable:

Question 1: If the Blackhawks were to call up another AHLer, who would you want it to be and why?

Question 2: With Detroit only playing Chicago twice a season now, do you consider the Red Wings a rival of the Blackhawks and why or why not?

We’ve got some good answers today (as we do every week), so let’s get started.
