There are few things in life I love more than the Winnipeg Jets (the original go around) and Iron Maiden. When I was a teenager, the list of things I loved apart from those two was dramatically shorter. So when a story dropped earlier this week my personal summer of love was complete! Chris Mason wearing a mask inspired by Eddie from the Aces High single? Seriously?!?

His NHL career hasn’t taken off quite yet, but that hasn’t stopped Paul Postma from dreaming about being a Jet.
The Red Deer, AB. native originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers 205th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft has spent the last two seasons with the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.

It's been a big summer for the Nations. We've added some stellar talent to Leafs Nation, Canucks Army and Flames Nation. We had five writers at the draft and managed to debut Flames Nation radio. Oilers Nation radio has grown in audience with each iteration. And the return of the Jets allowed us to add the newest member site to the network.

OMG OMG OMG OMG. Ryan Smyth is on NationRadio this week. Robin Brownlee hosts for the second week in a row and quite honestly we could kiss him for getting this to happen*
Cam Barker is on the show too - and you may recall he now plays with a Mr. Ryan Smyth. David Staples from the Edmonton Journal stops by too, ostensibly to discuss Ryan Smyth. Finally Ben Kuzma from the Vancouver Provence swings through. Perhaps he has some information regarding Ryan Smyth?
This is NationRadio. Enjoy!
*That's what she said

The NHL is mostly in the doldrums in regard to player movement at the moment, but that doesn't mean that the business is completely peaceful, so it's time for a brief review of some of the happenings around the game. In this installment, the league's R and D camp has a few useful ideas, off-ice doings dominate in Phoenix, St. Louis, Dallas and the Island, and a member of hockey's family is laid to rest.
