Minnesota Wild vs Vancouver Canucks

Who wins the Northwest Division?

I have Minny winning it, they got better exponentially better and their fans will be excited. And also I don't think the Canucks really care about the regular season at this time. I think it will be close though.

The Canucks have won back to back Presidents Trophies and 4 division titles in a row. As of now it is the Canucks to lose. Though I do not care if Vancouver wins the division or not because we seem to play like trash at home anyways (in playoffs)

I think the Canucks have the better supporting cast.

If you break it down, I think Parise is better than Kesler and Suter is better than Edler, but the Sedins and Schneider tip the scale in favor of the Canucks.

Canucks, will be a close race, I think the northwest is going to make noise this year.

Minnesota might not even be 3rd in the division, let alone win it.

You know what I fear the most?

The Wild being this year's Sabres. Remember how people overrated them during last year's off-season? I'm starting to dislike it...

Canucks will win it, but they are not going to have a cakewalk like they have the last few years.

I'm a Wild fan and I voted Canucks. What have the Wild proved? Nothing.

It's going to be a very interesting year for our division.

You've got the Nucks trying to defend their title from two teams trying to prove themselves and continue developing the youth (Minny/Colorado), a team desperately trying to remain relevant and get back into the postseason (Calgary) and a young team with a new coach as well as nothing to lose (Edmonton) which could always throw a wrench into someone's plans.

I'm not sure we can even get a reasonable idea of how the division will unfold until the rosters get a little more established after camp and we start seeing how preseason is looking.

Vancouver, if healthy, should still be the favorite to win the cup, let alone win the division. Minnesota has a long way to go...

Vancouver mailed their effort in almost all season long, last year, and still won the President`s Trophy. However, along with injuries to two of their stars, that`s what ended up biting them in the ass last season. They got complacent and were surprised by the Kings.

Next season, you`d have to think they`ll have to have the same attitude they had the year they made the Finals. I think they`ll be on a mission and run away with the West.

Nucks will likely win, but that doesn't mean they'll get farther in the playoffs.

As a Wild fan....it's easily Vancouver. The Wild may not get tossed around as much, but they still have A LOT to prove.

You have to think it will be the Canucks. Adding Parise and Suter to your roster without subtracting anything is obviously going to make your team better, but I wonder how much depth the Wild have. I admit I don't know much about the team, but do they have the depth Vancouver has? Probably not. Who is their number #2 defenceman after Suter? Would it be Gilbert? I just don't see them being as good as the Canucks.

I'd say the Wild have about as much of a chance to win the division as Colorado does.
