The USA needs to win a few before they can be considered Canada's main rival. Close only counts in hand grenades and nuclear war.

I'm trying to remember, but has the USA finished ahead of Canada even once at the Olympics since the NHL was invited?
In this analogy, you're right about Canada=packers. But the bears aren't team USA, they're Russia, while the vikings are team USA. Basically, bears=Russia (traditional rival) and vikings=USA (new, current rival).
