You need those villains on both teams to make a great rivalry IMO. From our side it's kind of tame (due to the playoff losses obviously) Who exactly do Canes fans dislike? Brodeur? Elias?
There's some that dislike Brodeur in the same sense that they dislike Chara. Absolutely elite player, arguably the best at the position of their generation, playing against the Canes. Nobody even came close to generating the type of hate that Stevens did due to the Francis hit though.

And for the record, quite a few Canes fans hate the goal horn crap just about as much as you guys do, myself included.

It's funny though most of us, with the exception of some of our more trollish posters or those that just still hold the Stevens grudge, don't hate you guys persay. Might not like you but there's still that amount of respect considering your fans don't act like asshats when dealing with us, and we try to do the same. The same can't be said of a few others who have made the trek in recent years, and/or have more bandwagonish fanbases.
