After weeks of madness with the draft and free agency, we take a look at what teams did and more

In the roundup we go around the Nation Network and give you some of the best articles of the last couple weeks. Every once in a while it's good to know what other teams are doing, or maybe you find an interesting article you would have never found otherwise.

We are the people that keep this whole circus running. We get no love but get to see Wanye freak out about stuff in person which is kind of a trade off.

This is all just getting really flame.

The mighty Oil will hoist the sacred chalice of Lord Stanley, whilst the simpletons to the south gnash their teeth and beat themselves in dismay all the while shaking their gnarled, leprous fists in the air shouting, "But we had truculence! Truculence I say!"

Well, they finished higher in the standings, so while the Flames are not very good, the Oilers have the "suck" title. And given the Flames were supposed to be bad while the Oilers were, according to their fan base, supposed to be competing for the cup. The Oilers seem to suck harder still. And the cherry on the "suck " sundae is that the Oilers will be ruining yet another 18 year old potential superstar in Draisaitl because they can't sign more than 1 NHL quality center for their team. So, it is the Oilers who have the title of -to paraphrase the immortal Homer Simpson - "the Oilers are the suckiest bunch of sucks who ever sucked.

It.s not just that they are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked, so much as they don't seem to mind being the suckiest sucks who ever sucked. Quite frankly that's disturbing.

Canucks fan checking in. Is this what I have to look forward to after a couple more years of irrelevance? I mean, it's already started among Canuck fans... And we were relevant as early as a couple of years ago!

Yup watching fans of crap teams argue is sadness. When you suck just grab a beer and watch hoping it will get better

Time for everyone to go back to their own websites. Time for the writers to create a story on their own teams. Have a good summer all the fans of the different teams on the Nation, rest up we have a long season of bashing each other and unfortunately our own teams.

I'm an oilers fan and I would agree with that. I do like how the flames are building their prospect pool. However, I do think this "re -build" for the flames will take longer then many expect. IMO, it'll be at least 5 years until they are competitive again.

According to your calculations then that would make it a 13 year rebuild for the Oilers!

Nice job Oilers! You have set a great standard!

hahahaha

that you still have the strength, let alone the desire, to write this after all these years of being the worst in the NHL is commendable. Hang it there, it should get better, no, it almost has to get better, as it can't possibly get worse.

My bold prediction - Oilers move up to 25th in the league this year! Yay, progress!

What is missing is an article written about the Winnipeg Jets. How long can you be in the league without making any moves and still be called a GM? Roster lock at the bottom end of the roster is foolish...that is where young players can get onto the team. Signing Stewart and Thorburn long term makes no sense.
