This. DC is a football city first, and the only team they hate more than the Eagles are the Cowboys. Growing up in NOVA there was a lot of hate about anything Philadelphia. My friends that are Caps fans mostly started watching more recently. They identify the Flyers as bad guys because they come from Philly.

For me personally, I see the Caps & Pens as the two big rivals (the Caps is a bias thing for me... otherwise I get shat on by friends). Then the Rangers & Habs. I really don't feel the hatred for the Devils that I did earlier this decade. I couldn't stand Scott Stevens. I like a lot of their fans on these boards too (which may be why I'm beginning to despise Montreal more and more).
