Nation Radio's first show of 2012 is top notch. We leave the WJHC behind and get back to the business of talking NHL players and prospects. We get some in-depth Leafs updates courtesy JP NIkota and James Mirtle as well as some Flames talk (eyeroll) with Kent Wilson.

Of course, the Oilers get the most airtime with Dennis King, Todd Nelson and Jason Gregor covering all the bases.

This Nation Radio.

Segment 1

Head coach of the Oklahoma Barons Todd Nelson stops by to talk about Gilbert Brule, Teemu Hartikainen and MPS.

Segment 2

Leafs Nation's JP Nikota gives us an update on Komisarek's apparent "turn-around", the "Phaneuf effect" and Joffrey Lupul.

Segment 3

The first guy to start counting scoring chances and publish them online, Dennis King talks with Lowetide about a variety of topics including players progression, potential free agents on the back-end, failed free agents and the perception of Ryan Whitney vs Ales Hemsky.

Segment 4

The Globe and Mail's James Mirtle fills out part four, talking the loss of Colton Orr, the changing role of the fourth line in the NHL, Leafs goaltending and realignment.

Segment 5

Topics with Nations overlord Kent Wilson include Jarome Iginla's 500th and his future with the team, the development of TJ Brodie and the potential for the Flames to make big changes.

Segment 6

The final segment includes a Ryan Nugent Hopkins interview via Mark Spector as well as an Oilers in-game update from our own Jason Gregor.

Whole thing

I'll give it a shot. I assume you want a photoshop done?

Can it be any picture of Penner, or did you want the one from the article?

Thanks Lowetide for asking about Pitlick and Hamilton. Great to hear that they are progressing. Sounds like they just need some experience. I am a little disappointed in their point production. I am wondering if it would have been better for Pitlick to have a year tearing up the WHL with Emerson Etem. We sent Eberle back to Junior twice and he has done well, one of the major ways to ruin prospects is to rush them. I think that despite what Pierre Mcguire said, Paajarvi should have spent another year in Sweden before coming over.
