It's kind of one sided. Washington fans really hate all things Philly.

Besides that time we beat them in OT of Game 7, we havent really had any good playoff history recently.

You're obviously a young guy as most people on these boards.

It was vicious back in the 80s when they were in the Patrick Division.

my point exactly. Nothing has happened for over 25 years between these two teams. And no, our 7 game series a few year ago =/= a rivalry

Meh....Well it sure used to be. I grew up during that time. It was all the way up until the NHL decided to realign and shove the Caps into the Southeast upon which they lost all their rivalries.

Us oldtimers don't forget those times. It was flat out brutal in the 80s and early 90s.

In fact after going 0-6 vs Philly in the 86-87 season Poile SPECIFICALLY made the trade for Dale Hunter to keep up with the Flyer's.

All that video really does is prove how much of a **** Dale Hunter was. Sure he was a good player, but that kind of stuff had no part in the game. That was the kind of stuff that plagued the 70's and 80's and led many outsiders to believe that hockey was nothing more than goonery on skates. And before I get the hypocritical Flyers fan crap, I hate watching old videos of the Broad Street Bullies too.

In general, the rivalry has been kept up more on the Caps end than in Philly.

I'm sure there are a variety of reasons for this; the nature of the SE Division, Flyers having rivalries with the Devils and Pens that kept them occupied, and maybe some hate of the Eagles/Phillies has spilled over as well.

i grew up in those times too but the problem being is that in the last 25 years, the Caps let their identity slip away and on account of a fat toad of a man and his idiotic approach to NHL ownership. The Caps may have removed from the Patrick but your balls were removed as soon as Leonis took over.

Find an identity, cultivate it and then get back to us. Until then, the Flyer fan base will collective shrug our shoulders anytime your limp organization makes the trip up the I-95

Yeah playing Washington does nothing for me. Playing the Pens, Rangers, or Devils gets me going before a game.

That has potential to start a rivalry, I guess.

They must have called a meeting to determine just how useless Coburn has been.
