Well it's true, Pittsburgh - Philadephia Playoff series isn't anywhere in the top-15 of most frequent matchups. But they've had a few really intense series in recent years under that horrible 6-Division format that doesn't help to build rivalries. I would think that Pittsburgh would have just as great or even a greater chance of building rivalries with the teams you listed... But hey, in the end, it's just not having the Florida teams in with the Canadian teams which is the priority, however that can be achieved.
