To help keep my Stars family occupied, I challenge you with a little Stars trivia. A nice blend of questions from the franchise’s 26 years in Minnesota and the 19 since the move down south.
The first to answer every question correct will receive a mention on Twitter or whatever other form of social media they prefer, which is sure to bring jealousy and envy that could last anywhere from mere seconds to an entire lifetime. And really, you can’t put a value on that.
