Every form of NHL says the same thing when the Wings and Av's meet: The two teams will look to "renew" their rivalry. Why do they say that? Do people not see that there is no rivalry anymore, and hasn't been one for almost 5 years? I'm getting so tired of seeing this.

The only COL/DET related rivalry anyone's set to experience anytime soon is "white, rye, or wheat" for their toast on Sunday morning. Seriously, yo.

Also... I'm sorry... I dig the legend of the Stastny name and the new generation of the clan in the NHL.. but Peter sir, your son who plays for the Avs, Paul, still looks like he's yet to break out of midgets. Please insist he grow a beard or get a scar on his face.


No, it's definitely excitement.

Good job by the NHL to hype up a game dry.gif Do they do this for all 15 games the Wings play the Avs this season dry.gif (yes, a shot at the schedule). Unless Bertuzzi breaks another neck, the rivalry won`t heat up anytime soon.

This is so sad. Rivalry can't be built up outside the rink. It's a result of physical playing, fights, the occasional cheap shot and harsh words. It's the result of players giving it their all because they can't stand to see the other team win. And while this is true with most match-ups, not a lot have had the history of bad blood that the Wings-Avs one used to have. But almost none of the players are left that were part of the original rivalry and it's not easy to focus something like this without familiar faces.

We can only hope that something develops with Nashville biggrin.gif.

Toronto and Detroit is the best rivalry, but unfortunately it's dissipated as well given the lack of games between the two. Hopefully when Detroit moves to the East it will resume.

Maybe 'Tuzzi can show up wearing a Moore jersey like a diaper (ala Larry Flint) and we can all call it a day.

Wait, better yet, a Patty Roy jersey. wink.gif

okay okay all you venerable old timers, stop it.

i dont agree at all that a rivalry is built mainly on "physical play" and that you have to "hate" the other guys. competition for first place/championships is perfectly fine. and maybe you don't want to hear it, but it IS true the Avs will be great again soon. you can't deny all their upcoming talent. lets see what happens in the next few years if they cross again in the spring?

Also, Holland praising them only means hes a gentleman. Its too easy to diss on the opposition; he sees good in them.

Come on Tunbo, this is too many posts recently where i AGREE with you.

A rivalry doesn't have to be made because of a cheap shot, or someone getting mugged. It can be born of hard fought games, most of all, rivalries are born from playing several meaningful games against one opponent. Like teams battling for a division or conference title, and teams who meet up often in the playoffs. The physical play can accelerate a rivalry, but it isn't necessary to create one. Though, when two teams meet so many times in important games, there are bound to be some cheap shots, fights, etc.
