a rivalry has to be felt going both ways. if the pens fans dont see us as a big rival, all they are is a team to hate.
It doesn't matter what the fans think when it comes to rivalries, especially a fanbase as dumb as Pittsburgh's. Rivalries are on the ice, and on the ice, there's an undeniable intensity between the two teams.
