It hasnt changed the rivarly between these two teams, obviously i cant stand Boston and some of there fans. But i have always like Thomas because he just seems like a good person and Seguin, that kid is alright! I loved watching him play on a line with KEssel and Lupul and im sure there are no grudges between any of them. I hate the media for bringing up the trade whenever Kessel and Seguin are mentioned, there both great young players and im sure they could care less about it!
It's not really a rivalry asides from the fact that they're in our division. It's a combination of the fact that they're just not a very likable team and if you're not a Leafs fan, 99% of the time you hate them.
Plus, for us to even think about a rivalry, we'd actually have to compete against them...something this team seems to refuse to do this season.
Can't say as I've ever really seen the Bruins as much of a rival. The only thing I really dislike about them is their fans and their incessant need to try and inform the world how only they know anything about hockey.
