Yesterday we collectively looked into the abyss and decided who our Goats were going to be for the 2014-15 season. It's a grim experience deciding who is going to be the fall guy for the inevitable woes in the season ahead. Should you make a mistake and name someone who has a good season your Goat? Yikes.

Fortunately today we get to pick our Star. Rarely do you make any mistakes involving Stars - excluding this unfortunate gal of course.

With every single second the 2014-15 NHL season draws closer. For NHL players this means coming to camp in shape, ready for another season of heart pounding exercise. For fans of NHL teams this means coming to camp in no shape whatsoever ready for another season of heart damaging couch potatoing.

It also means it's time to pick our Goats and Stars for the year.

Last week we designed a survey to get a better understanding of what works on the Nation Network and what doesn't. The answers that came back were all across the spectrum - some provided great insight, others provided a good laugh, others made us want to rethink our chosen profession. 

We sat down at Nation HQ this morning with a fresh glass of thinking Rye and read everyone's responses - over 1100 in total! - from bow to stern. A big thank you goes out to everyone who took the time to answer this thing. Surveys are SO annoying - we appreciate you taking time out of your life to provide us with key information to drive our redevelopment. 

Our summary findings can be found after the jump.

It’s back to work time at the Nation. Unreasonable optimism is beginning to build here in Edmonton, Brian Burke is already irate about something or other down in Calgary and in Vancouver ocean kayakers shrug indifferently at one other when the Canucks are infrequently mentioned. 

We have some big things planned for the Nation Network this fall. Existing sites are being rebuilt. Sexy new looks are being designed. We have also purchased one of the largest hockey sites on all of the internets and we will be announcing all of this fun in the next couple weeks.

As part of our rebuild + relaunch plans we are doing a super annoying 4 minute survey. You know the kind that we all hate to do.
