Flyers/Devils. Broke my heart in 2000. Hate them with a burning passion.

Flyers/Penguins. Used to be Flyers/Devils, but nothing gets everyone riled up like Crosby getting his a** crunched against the boards by the Flyers.

One of the most satisfying sounds in hockey today.

Definitely Pens. What other team can I watch and hate almost everyone on the team.

I'm old school. I did not care for the blues back in the early years. But I have always had a major disdain for the rangers with a sprinkle of bruins in there. The devils isles etc are just a flavor of the day. No staying power there, Blank the rangers

Rangers because we actually beat them once in a while.

Obviously Flyers/Pens and Flyers/Devs is more heated, but I don't really enjoy those rivalries since we always lose.

I voted for Pens because right now that is the best. Historically I like the Rangers and Toronto rivalries.

I've hated the Rags and Devils a lot back in the day but whatever hatred I've had for them doesn't even compare to how much I hate Pittsburgh. There is not a player in the league that I would ever want to see get an injury that would threaten their career EXCEPT for at least half of Pittsburgh's roster especially Crosby. If Crosby ever gets his career cut short by a terrible injury I will celebrate for weeks and not feel an ounce of guilt for doing so. That's how much I hate Pittsburgh.

I'm definitely in the strong minority but Pittsburgh's team really doesn't bother me but their fans do. I have no hate for Crosby or any of the other players, except Malkin.

Second. I had this dream last night that my brother and I were on the Flyers and we were playing the Pens (and Ron Hextall was in net, full 80's Flyers gear). There was all kinds of pre-game commotion because of a story that leaked that Crosby was gay. And I was in the hallway outside of the locker room and Crosby was there taping his stick and crying. Once the game started it was just a bench clearing brawl and for some reason people were throwing hats on the ice. Long story short, it was the best dream ever.

Haha, my current girlfriend graduated from Boston University and she was into the BU hockey team (which is fine) but she started liking the Bruins and I put a stop to that very quickly

Although I despise Pittsburgh so much right now, I voted the Devils because that hate will always be there. Crosby will eventually go, the Pens will eventually suck again, and I'll go back to not giving a **** about them.

Haha, playing in front of Hextall and Crosby crying in one epic dream.

It ALWAYS used to be, for ALL, Flyers fan, the rivalry between the Devils. That has since changed for most Flyers fans and its Pens/Flyers.

For me personally, it is Rangers/Flyers because I hate guidos.

We hated the Debs before because we couldn't beat them, now we can't beat the Pens so I guess that's why they are the flavor of the month

Though I was watching I was too young to get a feel for the rivalry with the Blues.

Have hated the Rangers for as long as I can remember.

Although I still dislike the Rangers the Devs eclipsed them in the 90's. Always such an incredibly frustrating game to watch, sucked the joy out of hockey back then. I've actually come to respect some of their fans over the years though, the ones I've known have been generally knowledgeable and respectful of the game.

At this point I've changed it over to the Pens completely for two reasons. First, Crosby gives me the same feeling the singer from Nickleback does, an uncontrollable, irrational urge to punch him in the face. He just always looks like he could use one. A rare trait as I'm a pretty chill guy. Second, their fans. At least the most outspoken ones will interject nonsense into any conversation, completely derailing whats going on with random, un-thoughtout gibberish without a shred of objectivity. Most annoying fanbase I've ever seen. As hard as it is for them to believe, I'm not jealous of Crosby's talent, I just dislike him intensely.

I don't think I could agree with anyone anymore than I do right now.

Pittsburgh seems to own us the last few years, so NJ is my favorite I suppose.

I hate the Penguins. Rangers second.

I hate Crosby, more than anyone in the league. I hate Malkin because he's a *****.

But like Jules said, it's only a matter of time till the Penguins blow, again.

Voted Penguins, since I'm a relatively new to actually watching the team regularly I don't really have the hate for the Devils or Rags that other people do.

Same. I don't mind Crosby, but Malkin bugs me. So does Letang and Kunitz.

I hate playing Pitt because we usually lose. And NJ/Broduer has broken my heart many times, god I hate them

Historically, the Rangers would be the biggest rival; modern day rival has to be Pittsburgh.

The poll asked for favourite rivalry, though, and that's Toronto for me. Growing up in Southern Ontario left me with an intense hatred of all things Maple Leaf related and no win is sweeter for me today than a win against Toronto, especially in the playoffs. 2004 was almost the perfect season.

I hated the Lightning for about two years after 2004.
