    Shame the Wings don’t have a true rival at the moment. Colorado died sometime after 03, Chicago is now in a different conference, and the Wings haven’t been good enough lately to build a divisional rivalry.
    Colorado died after 2008 once all the key players from the heyday of the rivalry had retired.

    From a divisional perspective, once the Wings are consistently a playoff team again, I could see reigniting some of the old rivalry with the Leafs. There is a split of fans in Windsor and SW Ontario that obviously becomes more and more Leafy the closer you get to Toronto.

    Does the Stanley Cup have to carry the mini cup to full term, or can it recycle?

    Why was Ovechkin playing in a professional soccer game recently?
    And did no one know to defend him when he's set up "in his office"?
    And does that goal count to his professional career total?

    Am I one of the few who never saw the Hawks as a rival? Original Six, yes, but anything else? Meh. I think the Sharks were more of a rival in the late 2000s and early 2010s than the Blackhakws ever were. The Blackhawks, to me, always seemed like the Jan Brady to the Marsha Brady Red Wings. They always had middle sibling syndrome, from the Jeremy Piven "Detroit Sucks" era, and even up to 2013 when Kronwall deflected the GM7 OT winner past Howard, the Wings never played like the Blackhawks were a rival.

    The Hawks, meanwhile, watched the Wings win four cups in a decade, play for five, and always fancied themselves to be just like the Wings.

    I really can't say the Wings have any true rivals anymore either. I would have picked the Bruins because it seemed like that 2014 playoff first round was nasty, but it's tapered off since then (thanks to the Wings being terrible). I forgot the Lightning ended the Wings season back-to-back in 2015 and 2016, but the Wings went out on a whimper both times. Tampa only when Stevie Y was there, now, again, it doesn't really matter.
