Top 10 NHL Rivalries

The Top Ten
1 Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins

Yea I'm for the Bruins. All Boston teams anyway and who cares that the Canadians have the most Stanley Cup wins? No one except you Montereal fans. Not cool. Let's go Boston!

Red Sox/Yankees of hockey. Still, I'm all for the Bruins.

Bruins can kiss my ass. Kill bruins. Shoot the bear.

Habs all the way. One of the oldest and most successful teams all time.

2 Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames

Long time Flames fan, and I can say that we love to hate the Oilers.

Real hockey with real men and real intensity, gotta respect it

3 Detroit Red Wings vs. Colorado Avalanche

No other rivalry will ever come close to what these two teams went through. It was pure hatred.

4 Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Pens fan who is embarrassed that the flyers are in the same state. Classic Good guy (Penguins) vs Bad guy (flyers).

We hate the Flyers because they suck and embarrass us.

They hate us because we're good and embarrass them.

The Flyers are quite possibly the worst thing to ever exist.

Should be. Higher then flyers Rangers

5 Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators
6 Montreal Canadiens vs. Quebec Nordiques

Quebec City deserves a team, if they were actually in the league this rivalry would be 1!

7 Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers
8 New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders

"Potvin sucks". 'enough said

9 Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens

Classic dislike which the NHL ruined.

How is this anything lower than 5?
