The Northwest Division is known for its goaltending and defense.

The division has some good forwards as well. The right wing position is very good, even though it is not as deep as the center.

Martin Havlat joins the Minnesota Wild to help the team's anemic offense. Despite an extensive injury history, he is one of the most talented offensive players in the league.

Milan Hejduk is the best player on the Colorado Avalanche roster. His production has slipped with the decline of the Avalanche.

Ales Hemsky is one of the best playmakers in the games for the Edmonton Oilers. He is a very good skater and handles the puck well in traffic.

Jarome Iginla is one of the best players in the league for the Calgary Flames. He scored at least 35-goals in seven straight seasons.

Ryan Kesler is a blossoming star for the Vancouver Canucks. He recorded career highs for goals, assists and points last season.
