With training camp fast approaching, the excitement is starting to flood through the Nation. The schedule is out, rosters are being debated, rookie camp is set to go, and there’s finally news to talk about after a long summer drought. As such, all this NHL activity has got me to thinking. Today, I take a look…

We Want to Sponsor Your Hockey Team

When I was a kid, I used to hang out in the back yard, at my parents’ place, and rip tennis balls at the fence.  I would be out there for hours, convinced that I was going to end up in the NHL.  Obviously that didn’t happen.  I ended up blogging about the game I…

Photoshop Contest – The Finalists

This afternoon, Wanye and I locked ourselves in the war room at Nation HQ and went through over 50 photoshop entries to come up with the finalists.  The sad part about it all is that we were only able to choose 6 finalists. So many of you had great entries that Wanye and I almost…

Justin Schultz Signs a 1-Year Deal

This morning, the Oilers announced that they have signed Justin Schultz to a 1-year deal worth $3.675 million.  The contract comes in higher than many of us expected, but it looks like the Oilers paid a higher price for a shorter term. Judging from the reaction on Twitter, the Nation is divided on the new deal.

Photoshop Contest – Oil Changed

Has it actually been 3 months since we’ve had a photoshop contest? Well then that is something we shall have to remedy, isn’t it?  As such, I’ve dug around in Wanye’s desk, raided the Nation warehouse, begged a few sponsors, gathered some goodies, and we’re all set to go.  With the prizes set, and an idea in mind,…

Lost in Translation – Vacation Edition

In case you were wondering, and I know you were, for the past couple weeks I took up the Nation summer tradition, jumped on a plane, and got out of here. While I was away, I had planned on writing updates on anything amusing that I was up to, but it was tougher than I expected.  How…
