Let's be honest, in hockey the tradition is that whatever is interesting at some moment, it is a rivalry. Minsk - Riga will always be rivalry due to history, Riga - SKA games are always tough after our win in play-off some years ago, even this year when Dinamo Rīga sucked everyone remembers this:

Riga - CSKA is also a rivalry due to history, Riga - Moscow Dynamo mostly due to Znaroks coaching them (also it's the ''same club system = both teams being Dinamo/Dynamo stuff though I don't think anyone cares in modern times)...

Though I'd say everyone wants to beat SKA, so for every team meeting SKA could be a rivalry
