I wanted to say Dallas but over the last couple of years Nashville has become a big pain in our ass while Dallas has tapered off a bit against us. I no longer hold that fear before the game that its an inevitable loss against Dallas. Top it off with our playoff series against Nashville that had it's highs and lows... yeah... Nashville is the right choice.

Dallas is the clear next cut for me. But after the big trio there is definately place for Nashville.

They even took McGratton to troll Syracuse

I'm with you. Dallas was a huge PITA earlier. We just could never win there. Division team. Met in the playoffs a couple of times too. Many hateable players through the years (Ott, Avery, Turco, Ribeiro, etc).

But Nashville games have been more intense lately. Since the playoff series. The teams don't seem to like each other.

Pretty tight between Dallas and Nashville, voted for Dallas because of division basically, Preds rivalry still too young for me.

What has Nashville ever really done to make them our rivals other than one playoff series and the fact they have/had some pests? If Nashville and Anaheim stayed rivals for a little longer, then maybe they'll pass up Dallas.

No i meant what do you mean by ''i cant vote''.


I agree about what you said about Dallas, but while they dominated we kind of sucked (exept 03 Jiggy run for the MVP). So we weren`t affected that much by the fact that they were great.
We couldn`t win them then and we can`t do it now

In 90`s Avs and Wings weren`t our rivals just because they were great. Our and Dallas PO series ar in the past (they are not forgotten though) and for me, Nashville now are a little bit bigger rivals because of the recent seasons (not just playoffs). But this again is pretty close and a little spark to that Ducks-Stars rivalry would give Dallas real edge over Nashville (that would be kind of a ''reborn rivalry")

Dallas easily. The Salei - Modano incident. The Ludwig Selanne incident that led to a series of brawls. The 2003 and 2008 playoff series. Ott, Avery (briefly), Ribiero, Turco, Modano lighting us up everytime we played them.

Nashville isn't a rivalry. Last season we were 0-4 against them and looked like we didn't even care that they beat us in the playoffs the year before. I would hope that one playoff series and getting our ***** handed to us the past 2 years wouldn't put Nashville in our top 5 rivals.

Edit: Add St. Louis to the next poll. There has been a lot of bad blood between the two teams the past few years.

Dallas is a good choice. I went with Vancouver though, mostly because I dislike them but there seems to be some tention when they play against each other.

I think this is the part of the theme song that goes... "and the rest"

But I went with Dallas.
