Profiling the Northwest Division’s 2009 UFA’s

Edward Fraser of the Hockey News checks out the best the NW may have to offer next summer.

Any one of four teams could claim top spot in the Northwest Division this season (sorry, Colorado) and that team just might have to win it to get into the playoffs.

While they’re the worst lot in the West, the division is home to the league’s best potential unrestricted free agent crop in 2009.

As I’ve done for the past two weeks and will continue to do for the next three, here are each squad’s top freedom fighters of the next off-season.

I would imagine the top guys (Sedins, Cole etc.) get signed long before July 1. I would not be shocked if the Wild moved Gaborik. I think its time for the State of Hockey to try a new direction.

What a wild and wacky Friday.

Jets beat Stars 5-4 in OT
Moose lose 3-0 to Griffins
Ice beat Blades 6-3

And we start all over again tomorrow. IC Hockey Show at 9 AM.

Lots of Jets content to come on
