WINGSNATION.COM LAUNCHES

When we first launched OilersNation.com back in 2007 we intended on watching the Oilers return to the Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years and become a perennial powerhouse of hockey. A model of consistency. A team studied by Coaches for a generation to come for “how to build a winning franchise.”  So when it became…

VIOLENT GENTLEMEN

During this past week we took a trip down to LA to watch the Kings open up their 2014-15 season by raising the Stanley Cup, have a chat with our new cousins at The Royal Half and have a chat with Violent Gentlemen. This article is about their cool company and how they have helped…

NATION NETWORK SURVEY RESULTS ARE IN

Last week we designed a survey to get a better understanding of what works on the Nation Network and what doesn’t.

NATION NETWORK SURVEY

It’s back to work time at the Nation. Unreasonable optimism is beginning to build here in Edmonton, Brian Burke is already irate about something or other down in Calgary and in Vancouver ocean kayakers shrug indifferently at one other when the Canucks are infrequently mentioned.  We have some big things planned for the Nation Network this fall.

BRIAN SUTHERBY NAMED NEW NATION NETWORK OVERLORD

It’s summer at the Nation Network. All five sites’ teams missed the playoffs this season — a new record — so thanks guys. The annual “the Oilers missed the playoffs so Wanye goes running off into the world to backpack and pout” trip is now over. We are looking straight down the barrel of another Charity draft party and are starting to shill…

WANYE AT THE ANZAC GAME

Every year the Oilers fail to make the post season and every year we are sent out screaming into the world on a backpacking trip, prevented from scratching out our eyes, being caught bawling in front of a closed Rexall Place or worse. This year we are in Australia, the land of Bundy Rums, babes…

INTRODUCING THE FANTASY MINUTE

Now most of my hockey fantasies include Jordan Eberle, a bottle of sherry, a roaring fire and a DVD of All Dogs Go To Heaven. So when I heard about a video called the Fantasy Minute I was understandably excited. Today we are introducing the Fantasy Minute but be forewarned – it’s about fantasy hockey not…
