It would be Minnesota except their goaltending doesn't scare me at all. I think our next rival will be who we play in the cup finals in the upcoming season.

Penguins/Rangers.

Depends. I don't really understand the list of teams given because if we're talking about who's going to rival us to win the West next post season, St. Louis and a couple others should be on that list. As far as hating each other and such, Chicago is probably still our best rivalry. As far as divisional opponents go... this season The Wild will probably be the best besides us in the NW. In the future the Oilers will definitely be challenging us for the division.

I'm going to go off the listed teams and say Calgary historically has been our rival. Also I'd love to see a rivalry develop between Van and the Winnipeg Jets.

If Luongo is traded to the Blackhawks then its going to be Chicago for a very very long time.

It will be Now and Forever the Flames ....Im sorry but there is NO question.....as long as there is an NHL team in Calgary they will ALWAYS be the number 1 rival....every so often another team might creep in ala Coilers or Wild...but that never lasts very long , Calgary will always be the most hated team that the Canucks will ever play.

Yeah I don't understand how people can even consider L.A a rival. They knocked us out of the playoffs once fair and square.

- Also why does that chicago fan have an account on here?

We are long overdue for some intense rivalry in the NW division. For 4 years the Canucks have dominated it. With the other divisional teams making significant moves in the off season, things should be more interesting next year...
Respect my favorite team, and I will respect yours.

If Minnesota make a couple more moves and bolster their depth, I say they'll challenge us for the NW title.
Could also see LA at the top of the standings for much of the early season, challenging us for the conference title which will build some hatred.

Give Edmonton 2 more seasons before they really start to threaten us and own the conference.

Probably Minnesota, they're the most improved team in the Northwest currently.

Flames even though they suck it's awesome trash talk & always a good win!! Nothing beats Chicago vs. Vancouver with this current core & theirs.

Edmonton will be up next in the far future when our core has dismantled a bit & same with Chicago's... I can see our big guys Kassian, Jensen, Gaunce having a rival with the young Oil core.

I can't wait till Parise and Suter are exposed as the above average players they are!

Ladies and gentleman they are by no means superstars.
They are paid like superstars.
But still not superstars.

I hope Suter can play 60mins a game all season because he is literally the only top 8 defenseman on that team.

I can't fricken wait, so dam excited.

I didn't include Calgary because I'd thought we already are rivals with them. I forgot about Winnipeg. If they get moved into our division, it could spark a rivalry

Imagine meeting LA in the playoffs again. Will be really intense. Also l'm looking forward when they face wilds next season. Since they are in the same division, I can sense a rivalry growing

Because when the new NHL realignment comes in play we would face them more often since both teams will be in the same "conference".

I still believe Chicago is our biggest rival to date, just with all the history in the last 5 years, and to top it off with the Duncan Keith hit on Daniel last season.

I think LA has a good chance to be our next rival, but it all really depends on if there is a lock out or not. If there is no lock out, then I could see in the first meeting in the season a good rough game, especially from the Canucks, looking for revenge from being kicked out by LA, but I really think they need 1 more playoff battle to really build a good rival. If there is a lockout, well I don't see the rival happening if they have a year off, everyone will just be happy to play again and it will take a couple seasons before major rivals are built up again.

I think were going to have some pretty intense games against Minnesota and maybe even see them in the playoffs.


+1 i think our rivals in minnesota will actually be rivals again and edmonton might be soon if they keep getting the top draft pick year after year.

In our Division: our rivals are definately the 2 Alberta teams until Seattle joins the league
In our Conference: has to be the Hawks
And in a new league realignment: still Calgary, Edmonton, Chicago and the Jets (hopefully Seattle will be there too :)

Los Angeles Kings.
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.
