I am going to assume that from an all-time standpoint we can pretty much agree that Canada/Russia is significantly the biggest rivalry. There has just been too much elite hockey between the two nations and the USA hasn't been good enough for that long to compete.

But where are we currently? Has the USA now become Canada's greatest rival currently?

When you think of this take into account all tournaments. Olympics, World Juniors, etc.
Russia all the way. We've had so many battles with them over the past decade plus. Only recently has the U.S given us some battles. I'll always get pumped up for any Canada-Russia game no matter the situation, if it's round robin or for a medal. I always want to kill Russia. And naturally a lot of bigger wins and losses have come against Russia so naturally they are our biggest rival IMO.
