This is a tale of trial and error, failure, determination, and triumph. Oh and fancy advanced statistics. So many fancy statistics.

When we first launched OilersNation.com back in 2007 we intended on watching the Oilers return to the Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years and become a perennial powerhouse of hockey. A model of consistency. A team studied by Coaches for a generation to come for “how to build a winning franchise.”
So when it became clear THAT wasn’t happening we started launching other team sites in 2009 starting with FlamesNation.ca. When that didn’t collapse or have a denial of service attack we started putting more and more sites out there creating 5 sites, partnering on 1 and buying 3 sites outright bringing the total to 9.
And today marks the 10th site in the Nation Network launching – WingsNation.com.

During this past week we took a trip down to LA to watch the Kings open up their 2014-15 season by raising the Stanley Cup, have a chat with our new cousins at The Royal Half and have a chat with Violent Gentlemen. This article is about their cool company and how they have helped me greatly with the Nation Network.
You have been forewarned in advance. Anyone looking for Corsi/Fenwick6 calculations should skip this piece.

Ah it’s been quite a week. First we got to announce Jeanshorts is joining the Nation Network full time to head up our new video department. Then last Thursday we told you that The Royal Half has joined the Nation Network as our first American team site.
And now today the grand daddy of them all: we have purchased the immensely popular HockeyFights.com, making it the 9th site in the Nation Network.
