Allan, in front, does the show while Kent Wilson (note the glorious mustache) and henchmen watch
It's the labour day long weekend! While most everyone was out enjoying the long weekend, drinking a beer or watching the kids run around for the last, few, short hours before school starts again, Allan Mitchell was hunched over a desk, calling people enjoying the break, and demanding they talk to him about hockey. A surprisingly large group of helpful experts not only answered the phone but also answered his questions - and here we are.
This is Nation Radio.
Allan's first guest is the Nation Network's newest writer: Gus Katsaros. Gus has spent the better part of the last decade with the venerable McKeen's Hockey and is now contributing at Leafs Nation. They discuss his latest work, a pair of intriguing yet also disappointing prospects in Nazem Kadri and Magnus Paajarvi, and a ton of other stuff.
A re-broadcast of an interview with Steve Tambellini, a man some here may have heard of.
Strangely, given that he's been the Oilers' leading scorer for the last two seasons, Jordan Eberle has been a hot topic of discussion this summer: Allan goes into his thoughts.
Archduke of the Nation Network Kent Wilson returns once again to discuss the Calgary Flames and hockey in general.
Zach Bogosian had surgery on his wrist earlier this week, and is now going to be on the shelf for the next four to six months. Jets Nation's Robert Cleave joins Allan to talk about Bogosian and hockey in Winnipeg.
The Edmonton Journal's David Staples closes out the show, talking with Allan about the Oilers and the deals handed out to young stars Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.
And there's the show in it's glorious, unabridged entirety, for everyone's long weekend enjoyment.
Finally, a brief note for prospective advertisers: we're all about commitment. It's why Allan slaves away during the last long weekend of summer. If you're interested in promoting your business on the show, we will advertise, ADVERTISE, ADVERTISE!!! and not stop until you are completely satisfied.
