The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article.
Dylan Strome scored a goal that was interesting enough to get ESPN talking about hockey! On TV, too! Curtis Lazar was healthy scratched again, so we have to talk about the possibility of his days in Ottawa being numbered. Again! And Jaromir Jagr reaches another milestone, becoming the second player in NHL history to record 1900 career points.

The Leafs are in on every trade rumor, Canucks taking calls, Nyqvist somehow only gets 6 games, the Jets still have holes, Flames aren't sure if they are buying or selling but March-Andre Fleury is not the answer in net, breaking down the potential moves in the Pacific and Central divisions and plenty more in this week's Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen.

The Canucks and Blues faced off in an uncharacteristically entertaining and high-scoring game tonight thanks to sub-.900 performances by Jacob Markstrom and Jake Allen. The Canucks made a game of it, but couldn't match the Blues' attack, falling to 2-4 on their six-game road-trip.
Given the general manager's comments this morning, maybe that's a good thing. With tonight's loss, the Canucks inched further away from the wildcard picture and closer to being seller's at this year's trade deadline.

It's time for yet another edition of the Canucks Army Podcast and this week we delve right into the predicament the Canucks are in heading into the March 1st trade deadline. Hint, forget about the playoffs and focus on the future. J.D. Burke and myself debate the likelihood of the Canucks pulling off a trade or three and we muse over expansion draft protection list possibilities.
Yes, we talk about the Sedins and the recent drop off in their play but all may not be lost when it comes to the future of the twins in Vancouver.
We also reach into the mailbag and answer some listener questions, including what it would take to renounce your allegiance to your favorite hockey team.
