If I were a betting man here are the current odds I would put at these teams winning the Northwest Division for this upcoming season:
Calgary Flames 2:1
Minnesota Wild 5:1
Edmonton Oilers 12:1
Colorado Avalanche 15:1
Vancouver Canucks 1000:1
Although it pains me to say this, clearly the team from Calgary is the favorite. They made a great addition on the blueline and lost little up front. Kipper is solid as well.
