Even with the additions some of the teams made in the offseason, would you say the Canucks are in the weakest division again? The Northwest Division is the only Division wih one team above 500, the Canucks. We probably would have to wait for another 10 games to get a better idea, but I don't see any other team in the Division coming on strong later. I would have to say Wilds but they looked weak against us.

Southeast is the weakest division, but I think we are a close second.

Southeast is weaker. Washington, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Florida and Winnipeg all have glaring holes in their line-ups.

From what I've seen so far, the teams in the NW Division are not any better than they were last season, except for the Oilers. I was honestly surprised with the lack of offence the Wild generated the other night (though when we sagged, Schneider stood up well).

But, we've only cycled through NW once, so we'll have to see if what we've seen is what it is...

Sometimes I wish there was a juggernaut in our division that forced the Canucks to keep refining and elevating their game throughout the regular season.

It's not nux fault they suck.

just have to take advantage of it and get a good playoff seeding. Another prez trophy wouldn't hurt, but been there done that.

Our presence alone makes it a tough division, even if the rest suck.

I think Edmonton and Minny are going to get way better next year. This shortened season will not be a good measuriing stick for those two teams.

Flames are actually looking alot bette the past three games. Hartley has these guys playing a better style of hockey!!

Colorado has not orielly and Landeskog - they should be better.

Next year this division will be alot harder!!!

I'd say all of our divisional opponents have been not all that great to start, with Minny the biggest surprise unimprovement.

Parise has been alright but the secondary offense isn't there. Suter's been bad so far. Perhaps the contract made him and Weber fluffy. Grandlund has been invisible so far.

The Oilers are dropping like flies and Gagner leads their scoring.

The Avs are still mediocre and O'Reilly remains away.

And the Flames aren't getting better anytime soon. Baertschi isn't a future star.

Cakewalk?

perhaps with a healthy line up. But without kes and booth, think nux are doing well with what they have, but sedins are still MIA. Will be another NW div champ repeat, but maybe not the cakewalk u think.

On one hand, the presence of the Canucks steals a few wins from our division rivals (Minnesota and Calgary) every season. On the other hand they have the opportunity to take them back against the even weaker members (Colorado). So there really isn't an excuse for all of them to have been as bad as they have been for the past few seasons. Oh well, doesn't hurt the Canucks in this tight schedule.

Well I can`t wait for this division to get stronger...it will keep the Canucks on their toes throughout the season
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

The Southeast is the weakest but our is pretty weak too but this will help us our in the shorted season since we are already 5-0-1 against them.

From the Canucks point of view, the NW division is one of the weakest...

From the Flames point of view, the NW division is one of the strongest.

You guys are literally dumb as potatoes. You can't just vote out a guy because he is too "tricky" and miles better than you...absolutely sickening
