That could change as Detroit should be more human next year than they have in our existence. We, as fans, really hate St. Louis. Their fans have an arrogance about them that completely belies their Stanley Cup pedigree. But I'm not sure that translates to the ice.

Calgary hates us, and we hate Calgary. They would probably fall into at least third. There are some fun matchups between us and Calgary: Iginla v. Vokoun; Trotz v. Sutter; Tootoo v. Everyone.

If I had to rank them, I'd buck the trend and say that Columbus would be first. Then Detroit followed by Calgary.
