Which is a great point.

A rivalry doesn't have to last forever.

While the Whalers existed, I recall it being pretty intense, though I was very young.

Why shouldn't that exist now, they still exist but in Raleigh... the divisions dumb things down a bit.

Which is why a lot of fans don't feel the rivalry between the Habs, Bruins, Leafs anymore. But they're still there.
