After the jump, some of the best general interest articles from the Nation Network this week. Topics include (but are not limited to, he said in a lawyerly, small print voice): Justin Schultz, whether older players get worse over the course of a long season (don't break a hip, Ryan), the best bargains in the NHL, Hall of Fame inductees Pavel Bure and Barrie Stafford, the best and worst in jerseys, a player who isn't happy with his NHL '13 rating, and of course the lockout.

It's Hockey Hall of Fame week, so we lead off with a question: should the Canucks retire Pavel Bure's jersey? From there, the conversation goes all over - NHL equivalencies, the impact of the lockout on AHL attendance, whether rebuilding actually works, the U.S. presidential election, how to win an Evander Kane autographed stick and jersey, NHL '13, puckhogs, the demise (or exaggerated demise?) of the Sedins and much more.

The Oklahoma City Barons enter tonight's contest reeling from consecutive shutout losses, most recently on Friday at the hands of the Abbotsford Heat.
Todd Nelson entered Friday's game attempting to diversify his attack - splitting the trio of Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall over three separate lines. Ultimately, rather than diversifying he diluted; Hall's still well back of his form from previous years, Nugent-Hopkins proved unable to turn Tyler Pitlick and Antti Tyrvainen into scorers, and even Eberle's line struggled to generate offence depsite strong efforts from himself and Teemu Hartikainen.

After the jump: 20-ish articles covering a range of subjects. Which player overseas has had the most impressive performance so far? Why is the CHLPA imploding? Who were the best free agent signings of the last CBA? Zack Kassian or Cody Hodgson? Perhaps most importantly: who is Roberto Luongo mocking with his new Twitter avater?
