Well if we ended up in a division with the Jets, played them 6 times a year and then played them in the playoffs, it wouldn't take too long for us to start hating Buff and Ladd which would be hard to do at first but of course we'd have to.
I think if we are all in the same division and play a lot a rivalry will develop. It will take a player from one team to act like a tool once for the hating to start. For Vancouver it just took a large majority of the team to be douches so it happened quicker . But there will be new rivalries once the realignment takes place. And I live in the Twin Cities so I will get to see the Hawks one more time a year!
Why good luck? He'll be ready and isn't a coward that will run away or turtles when a Sedin goes after him. Too bad Daniel won't go after him and a stupid guy like Bieksa or Kassian will do.
Dishing out cheapshots isn't cowardly? Anyway I don't want to get into that discussion but Kassian isn't stupid, however, Bieksa is. Watch some of Kassian's interviews. He's actually a pretty smart guy that trains and works hard. His on ice demeanor is simply to intimidate.
