Meh....Well it sure used to be. I grew up during that time. It was all the way up until the NHL decided to realign and shove the Caps into the Southeast upon which they lost all their rivalries.

Us oldtimers don't forget those times. It was flat out brutal in the 80s and early 90s.

In fact after going 0-6 vs Philly in the 86-87 season Poile SPECIFICALLY made the trade for Dale Hunter to keep up with the Flyer's.
