There is no real rivalry between the Lightning & Panthers.

Outside of this forum, I don't think you'll find a lot of Lightning haters among Panther fans.

The closest the Panthers have come to a real rivalry was against Carolina in the Laviolette's divers / Eddy the Eagle era.

Using your logic the Dolphins biggest rivals should be the Jaguars and the Bucs... and no Dolphins fan really cares about those teams. They hate the Jets / Patriots / Bills.

Being in the same division creates rivalries, regardless of geography.
