Big names have been announced for the Detroit-Colorado alumni game.

Alumni games are usually friendly reminder of the past.

The next one might not be so,. when the Detroit Red Wings and the Colorado Avalanche's alumni will play each other, blood might boil, as some of these players will face each other for the first time in a couple of years, after being part of one of the fiercest rivalry the NHL has ever known.

Both teams were meeting regularly in conference semi-finals or finals since the Quebec Nordiques moved to Denver in 1995.

Who doesn't remember Claude Lemieux's dirty hit on kris Draper, Patrick Roy and Cris Osgood throwing haymakers at each other or Dino Ceccarelli's comments after the 1996 series.

Here are the lineups for the alumni game that will be played at Coors field in Denver:

This will be an epic game!
