Which Nhl team would you most want the Redwings to get revenge on for a earlier series defeat?
I would love for the Wings to sweep the devils in the finals for payback from 1995.
Probably Pittsburgh because it is more recent (and more primarily that in the recent past they have often been shoved down our throats constantly when we don't ask or need to hear about them as opposed to us playing them in the Finals two years in a row).
If you go by they beat us the last time, I perfect get that and obviously and probably the top reason, but I don't like getting into heated/hate rivalries all that much. While the loss sucks (and I'm sure Pitt fans felt the same way the year before), it has more with my favorite team losing than the other team winning.
Since we are talking about other teams with rivalries, San Jose perhaps, but I don't really think about them much one way or the other.
And in terms of other rivalries we had in general (not so much talking in terms of revenge), the Avalanche rivalry is all but done now with all the names from the late 90s/early 00s passing. St Louis and Chicago I always enjoy beating, but moreso because we beat the team in the same division, not really because of fans or sticking it to anybody or things like that. I don't get into the rivalries as much partially because I'm not from the areas and probably don't experience either sets of fans.
