Rivalries in hockey are arguably the most intense when compared to any other sport because of how untamed the sport is.
In a way, many hockey rivalries are almost animalistic because of how passionate and tough the players are about their team and the game.
Fighting and brawling in hockey games will often boil over to the point where the actual game of hockey can seem secondary, but in reality, winning the points is always primary to the players, and that's what makes the different layers of this sport so special.
I've been thinking to myself lately—what rivalries in the NHL am I most looking forward to this season? There are many classics to choose from, as well as some rivalries that should be rekindled this season.
I decided to filter out my 10 most anticipated, or ones to at least look out for. So here they are, enjoy.
