It seems that making it to the Stanley Cup final hasn't helped the Minnesota North Stars get more recognition in newspapers around the Twin Cities.
Says defenseman Rob Ramage: "After I get by three or four pages of [baseball's] Twins notes, the [football] Vikings, high school scores and university sports, I know hockey is in there somewhere. It's not like Toronto."
Houston Oilers defensive end Sean Jones, on the Dallas Cowboys: "The Cowboys are like a bunch of little maggots. Right when you get them off you, they keep coming back."
