The rivalry with the US is less of a hockey rivalry and more of a sibling rivalry IMO.
We're so much like you guys in so many ways, hockey is one big differentiator.
However, I don't think it's enough to supplant the traditional hockey rivalry with Russia, which while diluted through hockey and cultural interdependency over time, is still a bit of a battle of philosophies and hockey schools that has a certain dimension that our North American rivalry lacks.
