Predict the Northwest

Yeah it's still August. With rosters mostly finalized, pick the teams in order of finish.

In case you have forgotten, the five teams in the Northwest are:
?????
Quebec
Small Canadian team
Minnesota
That one team who hates us for no reason

Some people just need to remember that there's no reason to initially title this thread "Predict the Norris."

Vancouver- Good depth up front and back. And while I feel Luongo is overrated, he's still a very good goalie.
Calgary-Tanguay, Olli and Iginla will be too motivated to have such poor seasons again. Their defense is better than they played as well. And Kipper will be Kipper.
Minnesota- Good depth down the middle. Easier schedule to start the season and more "compete" level throughout the lineup.
Colorado-A lot of young talent but Anderson does not play the way he did last year. Duchene is not slowed but other youngsters, including rookie defensemen, have growing pains.
Edmonton- They have a lot of potential but too many rookies to be successful. They will have some very solid games but will battle inconsistency all year.

1. Vancouver (#2) (too much depth on that team to not take the division)
2. Colorado (#5)(Depending on how Anderson plays and if they can stay healthy they'll be a force)
3. Minnesota (#7) (Too much going on to not expect this)
4. Calgary (#10) (They've become the chokers as of late once the AS/Olympic break hits. And they are getting older)
5. Edmonton (#13) (they will be good eventually)

VAN - agreed, too much depth on this team to not be a force.
MIN - we aren't the most skilled, but we are the hardest working team.
COL - will be a close battle between them and us, we take the #2 spot.
EDM - have alot of skilled and young players, watch out for a good year.
CGY - will have another so-so season, and lose the edge late like they did last year.

Now that's a bold prediction - I like the Wild as much as the next fan, but it's going to be hard for them to finish first and second.

I'm not good at making prediction for the whole team so I must abstain.
