Nobody would get punched (even you kipwinger).  Maybe if certain members met up in 2009 or 2010, but not now.  Very tame around here.  

 

Now if number 9 looks like the guy in his avatar, then he might get punched.  

Hey, hey, hey!  Don't speak for everybody!   :tounge:

This actually depresses me.  I've been a fan long enough to lose Olympia and The Joe.

Yup.  12 games.  :)


In Topic: Grantland: The Heavyweight Belt of NHL Rivalries

Pretty soon rivalries will be based on the actually game being played. How lame. I can't think of a single good rivalry that doesn't involve punching. Except the Yankees vs. The Red Sox, Michigan vs. Ohio State, North Carolina vs. Duke, or Liverpool vs. Manchester United.

Yep, obviously can't have bitter rivalries without fighting. You betcha.

No one said there can't be bitter rivalries without fighting, although hockey does lend itself to that being a large component.  Most here are lamenting the decidedly low bar that has been set for what constitutes a rivalry; something we've actually been doing since the press kept telling us we had one going with the Preds two seasons into their existence

Rivalries today just don't seem the same as they were 15 plus years ago.

They're not.  Used to be a rivalry grew from intense competition that left blood on the ice, literally and figuratively.  Now it's just whatever team is playing on Wednesday night.
