Like I said Americans want to believe that they are canada's biggest rival because to americans it's a big deal but to Canadians it's really not as big a deal as it is when we play the russians.
I think most American hockey fans are intelligent enough (they are hockey fans after all) to know that USA hockey hasn't won anything since 1996. We don't want to believe we are Canada's biggest rival - we just want to be Canada's biggest rival.
