The USA is little brother to Canada. I see this a lot in the College football team I grew up rooting for in Michigan as a Spartan fan. Sorry for those that won't understand it but.

USA (Michigan State)
Canada (University of Michigan)
Russia (Ohio State)

A lot of times Canada won't admit to the rivalry until they actually lose to team USA. It seems to burn more than anything else, they at least full on respect Russian hockey. As badly as the USA wants to be their biggest rival they will struggle to ever gain the title. Just isn't the history, best we can hope for is just continuing to gain respect, the more you beat them the better it will get. It is however just very hard to matchup to the glory of the other rivalry.
