And honourary honourable mention to Edmonton, Vancouver, and Calgary just because the Western teams hate that the building is half Leaf fans every time Toronto plays there.

Anyone else find it weird that Boston isnt considered a big rival even though we're in the same division *and* both are original six teams? Generally speaking, it's not that far away either. Strange.
Yep....I find that with Boston too.........I mean they should be one of our bigest rivals........I don't hate the Bruins either........I guess maybe it's because they sort of remind us of the Leafs?...........A Good team but not a Great team that can beat anyone on any given night.

Are we still living in the past?

I would say that Philly, Sens and Detroit are our biggest rivalries.
You're right.........I remember one time they were interviewing Larry Robinson and they told him that the Leafs players like Sittler and Palmateer would always be pumped up to be in a game against the Habs HOWEVER, Larry Robinson responded by stating that the Habs games against the Leafs he and his mates thought were not as big a deal like it was for the Leafs players......and for him personally he would get pumped for the games against Boston.

Well my personal three are not as different as what most Leafs fans in here have already listed but here are mine anyways:

(1) New Jersey Devils........All roads to the Stanley Cup in the Eastern Conference goes through Jersey...the team that has stood in Toronto's Stanley Cup path on more than one occasion.........

(2) Ottawa Senators........maybe after this season I may place them at the #1 slot....I loved those "Battle of Albertas" and now we have are very own; "Battle of Ontario"........I don't really hate the Sens but I really like the intensity of these games between these 2..........

(3) Philadelphia Flyers.........Not only are the games in Toronto exciting but those Fans in Philly REALLY hate our Leafs and add to the atmosphere of a Flyers-Leafs matchup there in Philly.

I dunno, I'm surprised the Sabres don't get more recognition here. But I realize you guys do have a ton of rivalries. Buffalo-Toronto down here are the games I will never miss. It's always such a good time. Your fans are loud as hell too when you guys come here. It's annoying heh.

I think it's more a rival for the Leaf fans who live closer to Buffalo, (Hamilton, St Catherines, etc) Those who are able to get down to Buffalo more conveniently. I'm sure more Leaf fans would consider it a greater rival, if there were thousands of Sabre fans in the ACC every time Buffalo visited Toronto. I'm sure if you asked the players, Buffalo would be right up there. No hiding the fact that these two teams dont like each other, have been known for some pretty good physical battles over the years. Always been some of my favorite games. I do intend to get down To Buffalo for a Leafs/Sabres game one of these years, maybe that will add to how I individually see this rivalry.

Ya I agree about the Sabres......I've been down to Buffalo on more than one occasion to see a Leafs-Sabres game and the place there Rocks.......I'm willing to bet that they get more REAL Leafs/hockey fans going to THAT game than they have going at ACC.....the ACC tickets are mostly bought out by the huge corporations and banks from Metro and for these folks a night out at a Leafs game is just something to do with their free time.....whereas a game down in Buffalo for THOSE Leafs fans is a Night to remember.........I didn't place them in my top-3 but if we were talking about a top-4 then I would insert the Sabres in that slot.

I went to the Leafs Sabres game at HSBC last year (the one with the four fights in the first period) and there were only about 4 other Sabres fans in my section. It was a great atmosphere. I would encourage any Leafs fans to make the trip down, I'ts really an awesome time.

I usually go down with a large group of fans and we manage to get about 5-buses filled up for a game in Buffalo with the Leafs.....If you haven't been to a Leafs game in Buffalo you should check it out sometime folks.......that place rocks in there.

Yeah you guys usually take up a few sections of our arena. It's annoying but its very exciting as well. Toronto fans are hilarious I have to admit. Whenever you guys score down here, your fans act as if you've won the Stanley Cup lol. I'm not making fun of you guys, I just think it's funny.

LOL........Ya I know what you mean......It's because Buffalo seems to have our number the last few years and whenever we score on you guys or actually win a game it almost feels like we've just won the Stanley Cup.........It was ESPECIALLY tough to score on the Sabres when Hasek was your Goalie.

1. Ottawa Senators: The fans hate each other, the city of Ottawa is determined to see the Sens take down the Leafs and the constant playoffs matchups only serve to further an extremely heated rivalry.

2. Montreal Canadiens: Not what it once was when both were constantly competing for the cup, but the historical rivalry is still strong between the most illustrious teams in hockey history.
Always a sure bet for entertainment regardless of how far apart the teams have grown over the years.

3. New Jersey/Buffalo: Take your pick, I favor the Leafs-Devils mini rivalry but both are generally entertaining matches.

Philladelphia/New York Islanders are on the periphery.
