Flyers greatest rivalries

Since the dawn of that franchise, the Flyers have made several rivals over the seasons. Who would you consider, today, as the rivals of the Flyers?

I would say Buffalo would be our newest rival, but with Richards and Carcillo gone I don't think the nastiness is going to carry over

And the Habs would be about the same as the Leafs or better.

Atlantic Division (not including NYI), Habs, Caps. Leafs used to be my favorite rival but then they started to suck. I don't really consider them a rival anymore.

For me in the beginning it was St. Louis. They are the reason we are who we are to this day. Them and Ed Snider. For the last 37 years it has been the rags. I cannot stand anything associated with new york or that area. Following them in no particular order over the years have been the habs,bruins,leafs,oilers, flames(atlanta), isles,bevs,pens,sabres. But it will always be the rags #1.

PGH-Tops right now and best it's ever been. Fishlips is the most hated opponent in the 25+ years I've lived in the area. Worse than Chelios even.
NYR-Most consistent although it can sag when the Rags put out an edgeless lineup which happens a lot. Could use a playoff series to really spice things up again.
NJD-The game has passed Lou by and the sun has set for awhile on this rivalry.
NYI-Who? It used to be great.
BOS-Getting very hot again
MTL-Soft team but the playoffs have kept things kind of hot. What insults will Subban and Simmonds use on each other?
OTT-This one was smokin for awhile.
TOR-Same here.
BUF-Should maybe be hotter considering all the playoff meetups.
WSH and TB-Pretty good heat here.WSH and TB-Pretty good heat here.WSH and TB-Pretty good heat here...

I would say this but switch the Caps and Leafs. Leafs rivalry hasn't been the same since 2004.

Senators. March 5, 2004. Most penalty minutes incurred in a an NHL game? Helllloooo? Even Chico got in the scrum. Brash kicked arse and took names that night. Also, Markov scored the 10,000th goal in team history. I was there dudes, sitting in row 4 section 108. It was freakin' awesome!

How can the Rangers be anyone's rival? They suck.

I felt this way until they completely destroyed the Flyers in that NBC game last year.

The Rags? I don't think they suck anymore. They're still the same as the Habs on my hatred scale.

I was there as well, and for 7+ years I've been trying to find the right adjective to describe it, and haven't.

agreed. He seems to want us to hate Montreal too. I see Montreal as a speed bump in the playoffs nowadays.

Lately the habs have been up there, seems like there is some bad blood between the two teams (could be because we sent them packing our last two meetings in the playoffs).. maybe that changes now with the different players, although I doubt it.

1. It may not matter much now but once the playoff race begins, I could cheer on the Flyers if a team you guys hate (other than Montreal) are in Montreal's way for a playoff spot (and playing the Flyers).
2. The Flyers seem to be second only to the Bruins on the Habs' rivalry chart today.

More like the Flyers were a speed bump in the playoffs for Boston last year. Every other series for the B's went 7 games.

As of today I would rank them

1. Pens - Atlantic Division and 2 recent playoff series

2. Devils - Atlantic division dominance the last 15 years and 4 playoff series

3. Bruins - 2 recent playoff series

4. Sabres - Our most frequent playoff opponent over the last 15 seasons (95, 97, 98, 00, 01, 06, 11)

5. Rangers - Atlantic Division, but no playoff series since 1997

All-time

1. Rangers - Patrick/Atlantic division - 10 time playoff opponent, including 7 times in 9 years from 79-87

2. Devils

3. Islanders - Patrick/Atlantic Division - 4 all time playoff series

4. Boston - 6 all-time series, including 4 times in 5 years from 74-78

5. Penguins - Patrick/Atlantic division - 5 all-time series

6. Buffalo - 9 all-time series

7. Montreal - 6 all-time series

8. Toronto - 6 all-time series

9. Washington - Patrick division - 4 all-time series
