WCOH Game 9: NORTH AMERICA VS SWEDEN

Team North America lost a heartbreaker to Russia in their previous game, completely outshooting and outchancing Ovechkin and pals in the final frame only to come up one goal short. The upstart young stars team has been full value so far this tournament, providing entertaining, high-octane hockey that puts their opponents on their heels.  The…

View image | gettyimages.com It’s an indication of the strength of this particular UFA crop that Justin Williams comes in number 1 on our list. That’s not to take anything away from the 33 year old, who has been a high-end winger for years. But his age and the fact that he’s only scored in the 40-point range…

The Big List of NHL Draft Resources

There is a lot of information and analysis to consider when it comes to the NHL entry draft. Hundreds of draft eligible kids, thousands of stats lines, dozens of draft coverage publications/blogs and innumerable opinions about who is going to pick whom.

Happy Holidays Nations

    About this time last year we at the Nations were trying to figure out a way to make the seemingly endless lock-out interesting (and to keep the lights on as our advertisers fled in terror). Flash forward 12 months and we’re bigger than ever after adding Brian Sutherby, Daily Faceoff and getting JetsNation…

Jets Nation Casting Call

Merry Christmas!

    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).

A Holiday Message From the Nations

   Well it hasn’t been the merriest of Christmas seasons this year has it? Instead of squeezing present shopping around Hockey Night in Canada or Battles of Alberta, we’ve had to put up with histrionic lawyers at press conferences, game cancellation announcements and endless debates about which side of the labor argument is more reprehensible.
