One last preview combo post before we get to the real thing tonight in Boston. I have been delinquent (my real job pays better than the blog, as it turns out, so they get first dibs) but now I am here to make sure you know all you need to know about the Northwest Division. Here is what I think of the division. I'm an expert because I live in Minnesota.
5. Edmonton Oilers
The Oilers are going to have to rely alot on their opponents not being able to find Edmonton, because when they get to the rink, they are going to find the net with regularity. The Oilers don't seem to be particularly strong on defense. Or offense. And Nikolai Khabibulin has had a bad preseason. Their preseason scoring leader was Mike Comrie. I could go on, but I won't, because that's mean.
