My friends, it's that time of the week where our panel of
geniuses writers answer your questions in an attempt to explain a little bit about hockey and this universe we live in. For most of us, having Monday off means we can sleep in, enjoy a few AM beers, and (maybe) do something productive if the cards fall that way. I dedicate this mailbag to those of you that have to work today, and hope that these 3000 words of questionable knowledge can help you kill off even a little bit of company time. Gord speed, working citizens. We're all pulling for you.

When the Oilers season ends that doesn't mean life stops at Nation HQ. We keep moving forward, figuring out new ways to grow the website, drink excessively, and occasionally search for new people to join our team. After concluding the Great Intern Search® of 2016 we found a new team member for you guys to get to know. Today I want to take a few minutes to introduce to the brand new addition to the team at Nation HQ. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Kyla... the Intern.

Unless you've been on a complete news blackout for the past few weeks you already know about the wildfires that have displaced over 80,000 Fort McMurray residents in Northern Alberta. As a result of the fires, there is a substantial need for sporting equipment and our friends at United Cycle and Sport Central are looking to help with an equipment drive.

When I had a real job I hated doing anything remotely productive on Mondays mornings. Generally, Miss Milk and yours truly use Sundays as an opportunity to drink various alcohols under the guise of Sunday Funday. I'll admit that the rules for acceptable excuses for daytime binge drinking are a little bit loose at the Castle Milk but that's beside the point. Regardless of what you do with your Sunday there is nothing worse than pretending to be productive at the office on Monday morning, and you have time to kill. As always, the Mailbag is here to help. It's time to learn something.

The weekend is over, you're back at work, and you need a way to kill some company time until the Connorversary Party on June 24th at the Pint Downtown. With that, I introduce another edition of the Monday Mailbag. The mailbag only works because of you guys, if you have a question you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy the break from productivity, my friends.
