Yeah, I'm in a weird place. Detroit is in the east, CBJ is my east team. So, who do we hate now in the division? Dallas? Minnesota? Chicago? I usually believe in the whole '**** them all' house but, it was nice to have a hate where I'd kick random DRW fans.

Who's on the ****list now?

Dallas and Minnesota. And the Jets for our ex-Thrasher Preds fans.

Minnesota for Leipold and Suter

Dallas for being the other "southern" team

Chicago is our new Detroit... when we beat them for the division, we'll know we've made it

So basically sounds like the Preds have gone back to the expansion days

Boom. Jets for me personally, but I can see Minny for the fan base as a whole.

Stars and Blues for me. The most energy of any game last season was when we played the Stars.

Wild are next because of Suter, and their fans certainly aren't the modest type around here.

Chicago= Detroit. We care when we beat them, they don't

Winnipeg- Wildcard. Basically no history with us. Atlanta transplants may feel differently.

not at all... we are far from those days.. but until we actually WIN something (Division, or the conference via the playoffs) we will not have separated ourselves from our expansion brethren... and I will be BITTERLY disappointed if the Wild win either of those before we do

Colorado is the only division opponent that I don't already dislike on the ice. Off the ice, Dallas and Colorado fans are cool with me. Minnesota fans are tolerable too for the most part.

Official answers:

On-Ice: Dallas and Chicago
Off-Ice: Chicago and St. Louis

so it looks like Chicago takes the #1 spot

Philly for trying to offer sheet Shea weber.

Montreal cuz they are the habs (more of a personal thing for me, not really preds fans in general),

Also don't like Minnesota for obvious reasons. Plus those guys basically used out symbol and just turned the panthers head the opposite way and filled it in with trees and whatnot, so lame!

From a fan perspective Minnesota is the first easy choice, from the players perspective, all of the dallas games last year were super chippy so us developing a rivalry with them seems like a natural progression. I don't see the point in calling the best team in the division a rival instead of a "benchmark". There isn't really any ill will between Chicago and us and there certainly doesn't seem to be any reason to hate them because they have been better.

Gotta say, one of the truly refreshing things about getting your input now and again is the humility that is at the core of all your posts.

I would say Dallas for the absolute ugliness of their new gear.

Hate - Minny; Liarpold and Suter stench will never be off that franchise for Preds fans. (The Peg would feel the same maybe to our Thrasher convert brethren)

Rivalry Hate - Gonna' be Dallas, I think. As noted, awfully chippy already.

Minnesota has two strikes already but why give the posers the honor of our scorn?

Dallas on the other hand, that is just a franchise you can love to hate. If it were not disrespectful to the National Anthem I would say every time their fans pipe in "Stars" during the Anthem we reply with a hearty "Suck". I already hate the Cowboys (Go Skins!) so it would just seem like a natural for for me.

This is exactly how I feel. Actually dislike MIN; DAL is more of a rivalry with a sense of mutual respect. DET fell somewhere between those two sides of the spectrum for me, though closer towards the abject hate side. Hawks have never really even fallen in the spectrum for me; even after that Game 5 2010 debacle, I was more pissed at our own team than the Hawks. Same with St. Louis.

I'm going to miss the Blue Jackets. Really like their fanbase and we definitely could have gotten something great going with them given the trajectory of their team currently.

Oh man. I haven't thought about this. No more Detroit. They were the standard to beat. I just don't think there is a team to match that.

so maybe Minnesota, Chicago, St-Louis?

I don't have a reason yet for Dallas, Colorado, or Winnipeg. Though, wait a year and see
