Leafs and Ducks? Recently there seems to be a good amount of trades between the two and it helps that Burke whose now a scout for Anaheim again is close with Nonis... Idk, I can't think of anybody else for the Leafs...

Edit: Guess it was mentioned, I missed it...

I'd be more than happy to keep the DevilPred alliance going strong. Absolutely dying to get to a game in Nashville sometime soon.
I've never been in the city during hockey season - absolute must for me.

Sabres. Rocky last year with Kass/Hodgy haha.

Habs too I guess but I still remember the Sundin saga and it was a war zone!

Hahaha this.
It fills my heart with glee every time the Habs beat the Bruins.

A lot of posters nailed my feelings for teams and fan bases as a Canucks fan.

Always had mutual respect for Sabres and Habs out east, even before the Bruins series.

Its a little harder out west but I've always liked the Preds and Jackets. I think the Preds vs Canucks series was the first playoff series ever I would have been okay with to lose. Classy and genuinely nice fans.
The only pet peeve I've ever had with the Preds was the lady who brought a vuvuzela to the home games in 2011 but it was pale in comparison to the happiness the constant shots of Underwood brought me.

No, and I think I'm not alone, I always try to watch Flyers games to see Simmonds and Schenn and Gagne and even the Schenn brothers together. I'm sure you guys were pulling for the Kings last year to beat New Jersey because of Mike and Richie.

I watched your game last night and it was a bummer.

Yes, I consider them generally well informed and good sports, as well as their announcers being fair and mostly square.

The team just south of us however, does not meet the above minimum criteria.

If we both make the playoffs again this year, someone needs to photoshop in a "Preds" over the "Dogs" and replace the duck / stork in the upper left with the combined NJD/NSH logo from last year's playoffs. Could toss Suter and Parise's faces on the dogs and put a hungry Shea Weber with beard of doom in there somewhere for good measure.

Kings/sharks get along well. A big part of it, at least for me, is most of the fan base is knowledgable but most of all...it's our mutual dislike of Anaheim that really binds us. Lol

Habs and Vancouver. We have each other back.

Hate Leafs Fans.
Hate Bruins Fans.
And hate the majority of Pens fans, since they were not Pens fans before 2005 draft. If you know what i mean.

As a Canucks fan I think most Canucks fans get along with Habs, Sharks and Buffalo fans.

Habs because we both hate bruins.
Sharks and Buffalo fana because we share the same pain.

I've always had nothing against the Preds. Even after the playoff series. I always root for them against most other teams. Don't know what they think though.

First one that came to mind honestly.

Then again, I think a lot of people kinda like the Predators. They have had pretty good success since entering the league, and have had some star players that will attract eyes. (Kariya, Forsberg, Weber)

I bet all of their advertisers and sponsors would have something to say about that.

CBC is a public national broadcaster, all eastern teams should get an equal number of games broadcast nationally at 7 est, and all western teams should get an equal number of games broadcast nationally at 10 est.


And yes, the media playing favourites with the Leafs does cause a lot of people to hate them.

Honestly, I don't see a team rivalry or even a fan rivalry between the Maple Leafs and the Bruins. I feel like a lot of it is fabricated by immature people who talk about the trades and the media.

Most Bruins fans I know are respectful about the Leafs and same goes the other way. Maybe it's just me, I dunno.

Both are on the chopping block next year as they enter our division.
Personally, I cannot stand Carolina. With that said; I see your point.

Actually I would love a showdown between the Pens and Oil in the finals, with the Oil winning (okay, that may take a few years).

It would be nice to hold the Stanley Cup in my hometown if Nick won it. I am sure we would have a VERY good time.

Sens get along with almost every other fanbase except the Penguins. Mainly cause most (not all) are arrogant. That and their division rivals, minus Buffalo.

Canucks and Habs. I actually know a lot of Canucks and Habs fans, out here.

I think we get along well; the 2011 playoffs was a civil affair. Preds fans knew they were massively outmatched and just had a good time.
