Kovalchuk vs. Chara, Malkin’s Magnitogorsk kills it, Ovechkin and Radulov go RRRAAAAWWWWRRRR! and more. Enjoy!
We’re now in the thick of the holiday season and there’s no NHL hockey, but there’s still lots to talk about. The league made a new CBA offer this week, the World Juniors and Spengler Cup are on, and the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to butcher the handling of their top young players.
Look at that intensity. LOOK AT IT! Seriously though, if you watch these videos you’ll see a good fight, some sick goals, including one disgusting spinorama worthy of being considered for goal of the year. Enjoy!

While it’s probably prudent to curb ones enthusiasm, given Team Canada’s opening game at the World Junior Championship in Russia amounted to little more than a controlled scrimmage against an overmatched opponent, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins gave fans plenty to cheer about in a 9-3 waltz over Germany today.
May all the Nations Network writers have a very merry Christmas today and tomorrow. Unless you’re a grinch or something, then may you have a miserable humbug and successfully ruin everyone else’s good time (looking at you, Bettman).
T’is the season to watch wicked goals and not people talk about decertification. Enjoy! We’ll be back on Boxing Day. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Lockout talks, an Evander Kane trade, a plan to rebuild the Calgary Flames, World Junior primers and a host of other topics were covered at the Nation Network this weeks – read past the jump to see more.
I gotta go to a game in Minsk… Anyway – HOCKEY! Enjoy!
The momentum is growing. Every day the calls to decertify or otherwise disband the NHLPA are growing. And I don’t mean from NHL players. No, hockey fans and media alike are now so fed up with what passes for collective bargaining in the NHL that they want to blow up the entire system. We’re not…
