  1. Hey Ernie, I’ll take it farther – the Rangers and Flyers are Hawks rivals?

    OH KAY

    NBC definition of “rival” – another team in the same league.

  2. Rangers- Original 6…
    Flyers- We beat them in the Cup in ’10…

    Not saying I agree, but I’m guessing that’s where they are going with it…

  3. We’re not really rivals will philly, pitt or NYR. Doesn’t make sense to me. But it is cool that the Hawks will be on national tv more times than any other team this year. Go Hawks!! Counting down the days till the season starts.

  4. Rangers are the Hawks rival by virtue of them being Original 6. They may be different conferences, but still rivals. Just not the same context.

  5. Hawks vs Pens as rivalry should be changed to Toews vs Cindy er Sydney rivals. Who is the better over all player, leader , Captain!
