Sucks to see the last parts of that rivalry retiring. Aaron Ward, Kirk Maltby..There's only a few guys remaining from the rivalry (Which, in my mind, started in 1996 and ended in 2002, but that's just me). Lidstrom, Holmstrom, Draper, Osgood, and Datsyuk (entered at the tail end of the rivalry) for Detroit, and Adam Foote and Milan Hejduk for Colorado. The big pieces to the rivalry (Yzerman, Forsberg, Shanahan, McCarty, Lemieux, Deadmarsh, Sakic, Lacroix, Vernon, Roy, Yelle, De Vries, Ward, etc.) Are gone. The only guys I really still hate are Lemieux, Roy, and Forsberg.
