The Northwest Division may have been the weakest division in the NHL during the 2010-2011 season. Although the Vancouver Canucks won the President's Trophy as the team with the most points in the NHL, they were the only team from the Northwest to make the playoffs. No other division placed fewer than two teams in the postseason. The Northwest division also contained the bottom two teams in the NHL, the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Avalanche.

Though none of the big named free agents of the 2011 offseason will be moving to the Northwest this year, there has been no shortage of movement through trades and signings. The Western Conference is always competitive, and the Northwest Division will be far more competitive this season.
