The National Hockey League’s Northwest Division has good right wings.

While the best right wings are very good, there is a dropoff to next level.

The Colorado Avalanche have an emerging star in Chris Stewart and Milan Hejduk, who has been solid for years.

The Vancouver Canucks have the late-blossoming Mikael Samuelsson and future star Jannik Hansen.

The Calgary Flames have one of the best clutch scorers in the league, Jarome Iginla.

The Edmonton Oilers have a big offensive star in Dustin Penner and a solid playmaker in Ales Hemsky.

The Minnesota Wild have the oft-injured, playmaker, Martin Havlat and an energetic, physical agitator, Cal Clutterbuck.
