Screen Shot 2016-10-13 at 3.56.15 PM 

 This week, we take a look at Mike Babcock’s coaching tactics, Bo Horvat’s progress, what’s wrong with the Oilers’ power play, and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen

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 wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Note* This article is posted across all Nation Network team sites so comments are an open forum.
