Winter tire filter: Looking for new winter tires for a 4-door Pontiac Sunfire.

My wife's car needs new winter tires and neither of us have a clue when it comes to knowing what is and is not a good set of tires.
We've been looking at two different types -- Goodyear Nordic Winter Tires
and Nokian Hakkapeliitta R
-- but aren't set on either one. We're mainly trying to find the right balance between tires that are good quality and will keep the car under control on snowy roads without being too expensive.
We live in Edmonton, Alberta and mostly do city driving during the winter (though we do occasionally hit the highway for trips to Calgary and a friend's cabin). We get snow, and the roads are sometimes icy, but our climate doesn't generally require studded tires.
Both general advice on selecting winter tires and recommendations for specific brands/models are welcome.
