What? None of those "historical rivalries" you speak of can even touch the one the Wings had with Toronto. The Aves rivalry died when Patrick Roy retired. The Ducks? There never really was much of a rivalry there, same with the Sharks. The Preds? They don't really have enough fans. The Blues has always been somewhat of a rivalry, but considered to be much more significant among Blues fans than Red Wings fans, same with the Blackhawks.
