Flyers' best rivalry

I was just reading the thread in the NHL board about the best rivalries in the NHL. So i'm interested to see what fellow flyer fans think is the best rivalry for the flyers. On the NHL board the flyer/rangers popped up a few times. Personally i have hated the devils since the '95 post-season. i think thats our best rivalry hands down. we do seem to be kindling something up with the sens though as of the past few seasons. And the Pittsburgh rivalry is also a good one, but soon they might not have a team so that could be out the window. what are your guy's thoughts?

I've hated the Devils since '95 too and it never really grew into a rivalry because unfortunately they owned us up until last playoffs.
Right now I think the Flyers get the most geeked up to play Toronto, and the physicality of their last handful of playoff matches is just awesome. Rivalries are born in the playoffs.

Tampa could grow into a good one if we begin to meet in the playoffs a little more often.

I hate the Devils too, but I don't think the rivalry has been two-sided. The Toronto games are much more even, but the Rangers are always good too.

Gotta be the Leafs. When it comes playoff time, there is no better series than a Philadelphia/Toronto series. The level of intensity and overall play is at fever pitch and you can tell when they hit the ice, they just don't like each other. It's hard hiting, yet surprisingly clean hockey. What's not to like about that?

I hate when people say Flyers vs Rangers...There;s nothing there I say Flyers vs Devils and Ottawa. Although the Rangers are the new division leader and we have to play them 7 more times i believe maybe 6.

Although the Rangers are the new division leader and we have to play them 7 more times i believe maybe 6. In the NHL i would say Colorado and Detroit. i remember when roy and osgood fought awhile ago that was awesome.

The last decade it's certainly been the Devils. If the Rangers continue to be revelant again, that could change in a hurry.

The rangers rivalry was very prevalent in the 90's with the whole Lindros thing and we also eliminated them in the 97 EC finals, but these days, its definitely Toronto.
