Nation Radio - August 4, 2012

It's the August long weekend! Hockey may be on the back-burner for many, but that doesn't mean that Nation Radio is hurting for things to discuss. Host Allan Mitchell talks about the Oilers with Jason Gregor, the Canucks with Thomas Drance, the NHL in general with Eric T., the AHL with Jim Byers and the WHL with Guy Flaming, with a little soccer talk with Scott Francis Winder in acknowledgement of the fact that when the thermometer is pushing 30 degrees all the talk can't be about hockey.

This is Nation Radio.

Part 1

Jason Gregor of OilersNation and The Jason Gregor Show joins Allan in the opening segment, and they talk about the Oilers' defence and what it might take for the team to add another reaguard. He and Allan go through the team's entire roster, looking at options all over and what might happen if there's an NHL lockout.

Part 2

Following Jason Gregor is Eric T of NHLNumbers and Broad Street Hockey. Eric has been tracking some fascinating things over the past season and goes into how much neutral zone play and how a team enters the zone matters to a club's bottom line performance.

Part 3

Thomas Drance shows up for Part 3; the CanucksArmy and Pass it to Bulis writer talks about advanced statistics and the Vancouver Canucks.

Part 4

Jim Byers, the voice of the Oklahoma City Barons, talks to Allan about the team's off-season additions and the opportunity for younger players to move up the lineup with some veteran subtractions.

Part 5

In Part 5, Guy Flaming of The Pipeline Show (and accompanying blog) joins Allan. Flaming does incredible work tracking junior hockey, and shines a spotlight on Curtis Lazar, Tristan Jarry and the rest of the Edmonton Oil Kings

Part 6

Scott Francis Winder closes the show with Allan, and he spotlights FC Edmonton, Ronald McDonald House Charity and a Guiness World Record video game marathon. 

Full Show

Catch the entire show!

And open in Quicktime if you can to avoid that ridiculous iTunes monstrosity.

This was a fun one. Flaming and I talked about the Oil Kings D who didn't get drafted, Eric T. is a joy, I could talk to him all damn day. Such an interesting study on zone entries, make sure to check out his work at nhl numbers.

Gregor had his usual terrific insight into the Oilers, I thought he especially summed up the defense very well as it stands now.

Drance is going to run the world one day, he has an excellent article up on Canucks Army this afternoon that's well worth the read.

Jim Byers talked about the changes to the team and some of the names he thinks will get a push.

And Winder had some info on FC's big FIFA '12 project that goes at WEM starting tomorrow.

Fun show. And thanks to Kent for repairing. Kent, if you ever need help with 8-tracks or anything don't hesitate to call.

@David S

whoever posted this week to iTunes, I thank you. I begged last week and I am happy to see maybe my begging worked. As far as iTunes being a monstrosity, yes, I agree, however... when you finally get over the hump on how apple products work, and modify your lifestyle to suite, it is actually quite beneficial. It is kinda like the borg, it brings order to chaos, but at a price. I am borg now. I hear the voices (in this case, lowtides) and when I don't hear the voices, I miss them. LOL. Anyway, thanks to lowtide... for arranging this week to be posted on iTunes, and I hope that they remain posted on iTunes going forward.
