It was announced a few days back that the Octane Dance Team will not be riding in the back of the pickup truck with the Gretzky statue as the team moves to Rogers Place. This was met with shouts of "good riddance!" by some and continued cheerleader shaming by others. I for one liked the Octane, saw great value in what they did and will miss them now that they are gone.

After trade deadline came and went I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. No massive trades to wrap my brain around, no giant clean up of my Eberle mechandise collection to box up for all eternity. No arranging for a fire sale of YakCity NationGear (side note: Yak City gear on sale here! Make an investment in lasting MemeWear that will remain relevant for at least 20 more games).

When we first launched OilersNation.com back in 2007 we intended on watching the Oilers return to the Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years and become a perennial powerhouse of hockey. A model of consistency. A team studied by Coaches for a generation to come for “how to build a winning franchise.” 

So when it became clear THAT wasn’t happening we started launching other team sites in 2009 starting with FlamesNation.ca. When that didn’t collapse or have a denial of service attack we started putting more and more sites out there creating 5 sites, partnering on 1 and buying 3 sites outright bringing the total to 9.

And today marks the 10th site in the Nation Network launching – WingsNation.com.
