There are few certainties in the life of an Edmonton hockey fan. Before this season, we could always count on the sun coming up, Edmonton winters being long and soul-sucking at times, and the fact that our beloved hockey squadron was likely to miss the playoffs. That was until now... at least we hope.

As you may have read last week, we hosted a couple of Scandinavia's finest hockey influencers in Edmonton over the weekend. That's right, we had two international celebrities in our city living the life of Oilers fans, and I'm going to tell you all about it!
The Nation Notebook: Therrien and Julien in a coaching carousel, Chiarelli on the deadline, Vermette's slash and some rumours

The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article.
In a shocking series of events, the Montreal Canadiens fired Michel Therrien yesterday afternoon and replaced him with the Habs archrival Boston Bruins' former head coach in Claude Julien.

Despite the Coyotes sitting 29th in the NHL, this is far from an easy game for an Oilers team trying to rediscover their offence.
