I could care less if we lose to the Leafs.
I have always hated the Bruins more, myself. But you don't get to decide for all fans what the rivalry is. Boston has been a more relevant rival, its true. But if the Leafs become a more relevant competitor, they will become an equal rival. We don't hate the Leafs because we havent faced them for 35 years or had cause to fear them. If they can become a competitive team in the next few years, we will hate them. Their is enough animosity between a good enough number of our fans and theirs that given the right situation (our two teams being competitive) the rivalry will revive.
