THE ROUNDUP

Nation World HQ
July 18 2014 09:12AM



The most boring stretch for any hockey fan is between now and early September. We do our best to scratch that hockey itch below.

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.

Did Kane and Toews just change the NHL pay scale?

We are the people that keep this whole circus running. We get no love but get to see Wanye freak out about stuff in person which is kind of a trade off.

I heard a rumor on one of those crazy conspiracy websites that the Flames suck, but the more I dug into it the more it seems like it might be true.

Spooky.

Spooky is a poor choice of words, especially with a black man in your avatar.

Here in Canada, it's considered racist.

Because the original poster was OBVIOUSLY making a derogatory racist remark in using the word spooky.

Must be your own racist mind making the stretch of a connection. Hope that doesn't tarnish your application into political correct police academy.

Well. There goes my attempt to foster an atmosphere of good-natured ribbing rather than caustic slander.

Your comment is much worse than his. The context in which he uses that word is clearly not intended to be racist. Nobody was thinking racism until you mentioned it. Your clearly one who try's to twist other's words and you're terrible at it. Just pathetic

The Flames beat the Oilers by 10 points.......and still ended up with a better first round draft pick?

How bad is the Oilers organization?!

Before this debate starts again I'm going to go ahead and throw this out there:

The Flames and Oilers both suck.

The Flames have Mark Giordano... and that's about it.

The Oilers have some young talent, but they're a bunch of softies.

Both are in the West. A.K.A both will suck for a long time.

And the Leafs are, well... They got lucky in a half season, and their star player is Philadelphia freakin' Kessel. If there's one thing Flames and Oilers fans can agree on it's this mantra: "thank God we aren't the Leafs, and thank God we don't have to live in that bloated hell-hole".

This just in:

Reuters: Oilers continue to be laughing stock of NHL. "Things are totally different now" report fans and management, mere weeks after once again finishing at bottom of league. Promises of imminent greatness anticipated, largely based on signing of questionable contracts and introduction of recently drafted teenager into starting line-up.

Oilers rebuilding 2015,16,17,18,19, slightly competitive 20, restart rebuild 21, wonder how they're going to run a team with only 6 fans in 2022....appeal to the federal government for assistance in 2023....

Serious question: when was the last time the Oilers had more points in a 82 game season than the Flames? Hint: if you guessed 2006 you would be wrong...

Anyone???

Sorry did i miss something?

I got 3 trashes for saying the last year the Oilers finished higher than the Flames was in the 2002-03 season, which i think is accurate.

Did i miss a year somewhere?

Ugh. Why do they do these combined posts? Comments start off degenerative and don't improve.

Fire It Up, the R Card is so misused and overused. Nothing could be more boring.

Not that I have a lot of interest in bashing Alberta, as I think it's a lovely province in many ways, but Albertans need to stop pretending they're really awesome and rich for any reason other than the fact they happen to have a massive oil industry. You don't really need to be hard working or special to have one of those. Only lucky.

There's a good reason why people in BC don't much care for the Northern Gateway pipeline, and it's probably because they don't really care to make hundreds of billions for Alberta at the cost of their wilderness and autonomy...

Ok, no more politics from me. Carry on hating each other (seriously, these comments sections are full of insane amounts of vitriol sometimes...)
