I've posted this before, a few years ago, but the year after the lock-out there was an article in the Flyers program about rivalries. In it, they refer to a Sporting News poll "conducted on each team's home page." Several teams' fans picked the Flyers as their #1 rivals--NJ, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Florida. Flyers fans chose NJ.

My favorite part of the article is a quote from Gagne referring to Clarke's feelings about the Rangers, "...We know in our minds that he (then GM Clarke) hates those Rangers and he wants us to beat them all the time."

I'm not sure if it's still the same today, as the Devils and Rangers have had a couple of playoff battles since then, and I'd guess most Devils fans hate the Rangers more today.
