I am sick of the talk about the Penguins-Capitals rivalry.
Games featuring them are not a dire competition between the two teams, but rather a way for the NHL to showcase Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin.
If this were a real rivalry it would last beyond the careers of these players, which it will not.
Look at real rivalries in sports such as Red Wings-Blackhawks and Yankees-Red Sox. These teams have disliked each other for decades.
The fans dislike the other teams, not just select players on the rosters.
