Man i Hate the Penguins almost as much as i hate the Rangers. should have added Jersey and Pitts. I also hate Toronto, im pretty sure jersey fans hate the leafs more than they hate the Flyers. The Devils Flyers Rivalry isn't really a hated one, it's just theres been a lot of history between the 2 teams.

Sens-Leafs, but it has dumbed down a bit. It's gone up this year compared to last though. Habs-Sens is pretty good too.

Habs/Bruins, no question.

Longest standing rivalry in the NHL, and once again boiling and simmering up.

Pens and Flyers. Cross state rivals. It really doesn't get much better than that.

The Canadiens and Bruins are up there too.

I went with Flyers and Pens. It's really hard to say overall though.

Leafs and Sens used to be great... but no one really seems to care much anymore. I care more about Habs/Sens myself.

I don't think there is anything in recent memory as huge and intense as the Leafs/Senators rivalry was.

I said Oilers and Flames. It slowed down for a while there but things started going again last season....obviously not like it was in the 80s but I found it entertaining.

It's been nearly 5 years since anything serious, huge, or intense. It's fading.

Clearly a Rangers fan if you think any of those pale in comparison to the Hawks vs. Wings, Habs vs. Leafs, Leafs vs. Sens or Oilers vs. Flames.

I voted Oilers vs. Flames without thinking. If I could do it again, I would've voted Habs vs. Leafs...those two are BY FAR, in my opinion, the most lethal rivalries in hockey.

I went with the homer pick here: Oilers-Flames. Even these days, the hate the two cities and fans have for each other is something else.

Try 2. Their regular season battles (even when the Sens were killing them) were pretty cool.

Definetly not the best, but the LA ANA rivalry is given a bit of a nasty edge when considering that we live pretty much in the same area. Of course, the Kings fans get **** from the Ducks fans, but we in turn point out that they were named after a disney movie

Pens-Flyers is going to get even better over the next few years.

right now its Habs-Bruins, there was one game last year when the Habs won something like 6-2 with the Bruins winning 5 fights that game. PJ Axelsson got in a fight against the habs, they got swept and laughed at in the regular season then surprised in the playoffs and were a huge reason the Habs lost to the Flyers. There is so much bad blood between the two teams at the moment.

A huge reason the Habs lost? Yeah, that game 7 really killed them. The only "huge" reason the Habs lost is that the Flyers were better.

But yeah, there is a lot of bad blood right now between both teams and fans. But hey, for this pool I'm biased since I hate the Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots... especially the Patriots.

the Bruins series definitely tired the canadians out, it wasn't necessarily physical but that was a very mentally draining draining series. The Canadians were at one point in a comfortable lead and the Bruins came back and pushed them to 7 games, and got the Habs struggling to win, they also hurt carey price's confidence with the series, game 7 was not the climax of the series game 6 was, that was the game that had the greatest effect on the two teams.

How so? Rivalries are born and grow / survive in the playoffs. When was the last time the leaves and habs met in the playoffs?

My vote is Boston / Montreal. No two teams have met more in the playoffs and although Montreal has won most of those series, they're usually long, hard, close series.

Agreed on both points.

Although I guess me agreeing with a Bruins fan kind of softens the point a little.

My post was in past tense.

Still there has been no rivalry that can even compare since.
