We're half way through August and only a few weeks away from the prospects tourny and therefore real, actual hockey stuff to talk about. For now, FN has a few things coming to keep you occupied.

In what can only be described as 'epic' - Robin Brownlee makes his inaugural appearance on NationRadio this week. After 25 episodes of refusing to appear as a guest, the legend vaults right into the big chair taking the reins as the host, filling in for Lowetide who is on a well deserved vacation. And he flipped through his rolodex and booked some pretty spectacular guests.
Not one but TWO Edmonton Oilers are on the show this week as Sam Gagner and Ryan Whitney stop by to say hello. Newly re-signed Oilers play by play man Kevin Quinn comes by too, to put the rumours of a multi-million dollar contract to bed. Oh yeah, and Oilers Head Scout Stu MacGregor? He's here too.
This is some amazing NationRadio.

It's fairly clear Calgary's signing of Scott Hannan on Saturday is a low risk one at the very least. It's tough to rip apart signing a blueliner to a one year, $1 million deal on August 13th; a defender who has played some very important minutes in the past. But there's also no doubt Hannan has something to prove coming into Calgary, after waiting as long as he did to sign his new contract.

Tim Erixon’s departure from the Calgary Flames organization was unceremonious to say the least. For those who don’t remember, the Flames were forced to trade the young, blue-chip defenseman to the New York Rangers back on June 1st when it became apparent that Erixon would not sign an entry-level contract with the club.
