07:27 AM ET 08.22 | Certainly not yet Montreal-Boston or Flyers-Pens, or even Detroit-Nashville, Predators head coach Barry Trotz did what he could to fan the flames of a new rivalry. [The Preds], according to their coach, are in search of a new club to hate. ... That's why Trotz said he's turning his attention to the Minnesota Wild, who he said Wednesday bought all-star defenceman Ryan Suter out from underneath his club prior to last season. Following seven seasons in Tennessee, Suter agreed to a massive 13-year, $98 million deal with the Wild before the lockout. "We've got to start new rivalries," Trotz said. "They stole Ryan Suter, so I want to kick their butt, plain and simple."

Rivalry desperation.

Good for Trotz. Why play nice? Give your players a reason to shove it down their throats every game.

I can't believe FN is continuing to post threads when this site sucks the big one.

Fix it!

For a website that has only one photo of every player and keeps using it until you wanna puke, this doesn't surprise me Canuck. Damn I said puke, the mods will be all over that!

Its not a rivalry if you have to invent reasons to hate the other team.

I'd like to see a hockey thread on top of the MOST POPULAR list. After this thread maxs out at 20 comments if everybody posts a comment repeatedly (just keep hitting submit) we should get there.

Probably not going to take many posts to get on the board.

83 is tops right now but let's wait until the 20 comments are full. Although I could capture this thread and turn it into a throwdown and we could chat all day if I left a link here.

Seems pointless to post to 83 when you can't read past 20.

I agree CI but its a MLB thread and those are people who are entertained by men standing on grass.

The "Quote" function isn't working for me. Anybody else has that problem?
