Since the two clubs have a history vs each other and now the two most talented rooks the league has seen in years make tha matchup what it is would you guys say the Caps are the Pens biggest rival more so than the Flyers? If not now in the next few years?
Funny you should bring this up FN... I was thinking about the two rivalerys myself when I read this post.
They're totally different in my opinion. The Pens Flyers rivals began, for me at least, when the Pens couldn't / didn't win a single game at the Spectrum for what? 10 years or some ridiculous thing? The Pens Caps is nearly the exact opposite of that. They hate us for not being able to beat us, parrticularly in the Playoffs. I remember the year that you couldn't buy tickets to see games in DC if you had a Pittsburgh Area Code. (They actually programmed their ticketing systems to not allow sales to Western PA residents)
To me, I respect the Flyers successes but hate the organization and dislike the ego-manical fans (No offense), with Washington I disrespect the organization (Only respect AO's abilities), and think most of their fans are uninformed sour grapes idiots (Obviously a gross generalization).
I probably feel about Caps fans the way Flyers fans feel aout Pens fans.
Isn't that Karma for you?
