Germans trying to jump into a frozen pool and hurting themselves is funny. The Oilers losing another battle for the hearts and minds of their fans and hurting themselves is not. Both are discussed after the jump on a frosty Monday Afternoon at Nation HQ.

It's funny how a protracted labour dispute in the NHL will put a damper on an NHL blogging Network. Assuming you define "funny" as brainshatteringly annoying. Who wouldn't want to read an up tempo article like that right?!

At first we looked back and were shocked to find that we had written the original with regards to the arena article over two months ago. Then when you think about it absolutely nothing has happened in the time since - no end to the lockout, no movement on the arena whatsover.

What was supposed to be a party celebrating the return of "Oilers" to "ice" has now been scuttled in favour of a party celebrating a "lockout" and the continued heartbreak of hockey fans everywhere. But there are a handful of reasons to attend which we will discuss after the jump.

With all the hoopla surrounding the lockout on the horizon and the Economics of the arena dominating the news, the Sports Section looks more like the Business Section these days. Who doesn't love a riveting cost analysis diagram where there should be a breakdown of the Oilers training camp line up? And we would rather see an interview with Fehr and Bettman wearing rumpled suits and rumplier faces than the Nuge all sweaty and talking about skating any day.
Anywhoo, we thought we would pose a question as it relates to a conundrum for the Nation if this is how things are going to be. An entire article surrounding the economics of the Nation Network. On a Friday night with no hockey in sight. Bleak huh?
