I believe every bit of that. I also know that most of that probably comes from your expansion status. For years, Blues fans have seen the Preds on the schedule and thought "that's a win".

Your team is getting better and the Blues are swooning a bit, so that stuff will all start to even out. That's when the passive hatred on one side and abnoxious condescension on the other will become rivalry. Your team will start winning more and Blues fans will start getting more bitter. The geographic proximity helps, too.

Of course, even we we totally hate each other, we'll still be able to agree that the Red Wings Suck.
