LOS ANGELES - As on the ice, the teams that make up the Northwest Division represents both extremes at the draft table. Clubs who do not pick until the 3rd round will attempt to help their teams as much as those with double-digit picks, while emerging and elite teams will attempt to shore up already envious pipelines of talent as others continue to flounder in draft mediocrity. Any given draft can shape a team's future, but just as important as how the Edmonton Oilers do, it's who the other teams in the Northwest select that will shape the vision of future rivalries.

Oh sure, we're only one game in... But we're undefeated. And based on this information and this information only, we think it's fair to make some predictions about how things are going to shape up in the West this season.

It's become a tradition: every year at FlamesNation (and at our sister sites OilersNation and CanucksArmy), our writers and commenters pick their stars — that one player who they will praise without end no matter what — and their goats — their yearly whipping-boy; he who can do no good for the season.
