Nation Radio – February 25, 2012

 

 

It was trade deadline eve, eve this Saturday and all of hockey fans thoughts turned to rumors and speculation. Monday will likely turn out to be slightly less interesting for Oilers faithful now that Hemsky has signed, but that doesn’t mean they and some of the other Nations teams won’t be making a move or two. This week, Allan investigates what the Jets, Flames, Leafs and Canucks are thinking heading into the frenzy.
