Yeah, but that started as a division rivalry, then through sheer luck they still wound up playing in the play-offs a bunch of years even when they re-aligned in 98. Now, it is hyped for Crosby-Ovechkin. Name another inter-division rivalry that is strong year in and year out. You can't because there are none.
Easy, Red Wings vs. Penguins. Two years straight in the Cup Finals. Rivalries come and go, and it shouldn't be any other way.
