So, How is the NW Division faring lately?


Some random quotes about our division brethren...

 First off, The Adjectives:
But the poor first 12 games still could cost the Wild a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, even though they are seven games over .500 since. And to rally for a spot in the postseason, it's almost imperative that the Wild improve their play away from home.

Next we have, those bastards that must be crushed:

It seems as if all the Canucks have to do to win their first Stanley Cup is to make it to the Final. Such is the suggestion made by their 8-1 record against teams from the Eastern Conference, a record that most recently included a 6-2 rout of the defending champion Penguins.

Poor Oil:

After that hot streak, the Oilers returned home with what seemed the reasonable hope that they would keep rolling and be in the hunt for a playoff spot. But it hasn't turned out that way, and the Oilers quickly sank into an abyss that appears as if it may take several years from which to climb out.

And what about the flaming Cs?

Pretty bad. Pretty, pretty, pretty bad.

Then there's the sound bite about our boys:

The Colorado Avalanche have been the surprise of the League this year, a big surprise because of Colorado's youth and because this was supposed to be a rebuilding year after the team finished last in the Western Conference last year.

But how is this for a bright future: Not only is Colorado leading the Northwest Division, but it is doing it with what now is the NHL's youngest team.
