In Montreal, during the playoffs, even the sports news anchor don't hide their hate for the Bruins.

I'm hoping that the Dallas/San Jose rivalry really picks up in the near future. It has always seemed like it has been just on the cusp of becoming a good one. Eddie the Eagle almost got it really going but alas... Just FYI growing up in the Bay Area you are taught to hate Dallas (49ers/Cowboys)

Not automatically but obviously the more you play a team the more chance that the hate will build up. I mean most of the players on the leaves weren't even alive the last time the leaves played the habs in the playoffs. (and vice versa)

Did your Mom & Dad not give you enough love growing up? Man you got a lot of hate. LOL

Right now I would say Philly-Pitts, Last 25 years it would be Edmonton-Calgary, and all time it would be Habs-Bruins.
With the resurgence of both the Oilers and Flames it will once again be the best rivalry in the league in the next couple of years. They will be battling for the division and then hopefully meet in the playoffs.

Devils-Rangers (not even a homer pick). there is some serious hate between the two teams. fans hold the biggest grudges against one another and burn items with the other teams logo before games. i actually think that its surpassed rags-isles for best rivlary in the division...this is kinda based on first-hand experience. im surprised about habs-bruins, i thought habs-leafs would be the one to beat

The Habs and Leafs Rivalry is definately not the most hated rivalry and i dont know if the Devils Rangers one is either, But, ive been to ACC when the Leafs face the habs and its really calm between the leafs and habs fan just a few habs suck and thats it. When i went to MSG to see the Devils and Rangers play, i had beer thrown at me, i saw like 3 fights in the crowd between ranger and devil fans and i was booed and made fun of the entire game, and when the elafs and habs play, you don't really see the hate between the team teams, with jersey and new york, its always fights and shoving and scrums.
