Happy Holidays Nations

About this time last year we at the Nations were trying to figure out a way to make the seemingly endless lock-out interesting (and to keep the lights on as our advertisers fled in terror).

Flash forward 12 months and we're bigger than ever after adding Brian Sutherby, Daily Faceoff and getting JetsNation on its feet (with the help of some great new contributors). We have some big plans for the future and will likely be adding even more content, gear, features, contests and fantasy type games very soon.

Of course, none of this is possible without all of our readers. So thank you for sticking with us through the dark times and continuting to make writing and reading here interesting, challenging, fun and rewarding.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Love this website. Check it multiple times daily, 365. Don't contribute a whole lot anymore cause everyone else steals my thoughts! I really like how there's not a lot of people slamming each other like high school theatrics like most other sites are, although I still go to the other sites for rumours cause I'm a nerd for that stuff. Great work Kent and everyone else.

P.S.- I love Lambert too, he calls it like he sees it, a realist.

What 8 straight wins against the Oilers??? At the end of last season the Oilers ran all over the Lames. This season, they won 4-2 and took a deserved loss to overtime.

If there is one thing every single past-present-future Oiler must always learn is hatred towards the fLames. Except on Christmas.

Merry Christmas to one and all in the Nations Network.

We here in Winnipeg don't celebrate Christmas for another two weeks. Took us a little longer to find three Wise Men and a virgin. Nonetheless, Merry Christmas to all the Nations.

Thanks for the good year FN (lockout notwithstanding). Here's to all the best in 2014 for all the contributors (writers and posters alike).

I didn't think that was so bad.... I am working on a solid Christmas buzz right now though.

We are starting with one and hoping for two. Actually if I recall you whipped us on trade day(and your commentators made a lot of jokes about us) but then we came up North right when you thought you could make the playoffs and let the air out of your tires. If you read carefully the whole thing is a wish list.

But anyways Merry Christmas to all of Oiler nations.

Thanks for all the trashes, it means that a lot of people at least read it. What puzzled me is that no one took it as a challenge to do one. Thanks for the props you probably got that it was a lark, a wish list and just jest in good fun.
