We sincerely hope that this special holiday edition of NationRadio finds you in good health and in good spirits. All the very best to you and yours and here's to a most excellent 2012.
As hoped by many, this week's show is laden with previews of the 2012 World Junior Championships as well as some talk about the Oilers and the Flames.
This is NationRadio.
Corey Pronman from Hockey Prospectus/ESPN Insider leads off the show this week. He discusses his favorites in the WJHC, takes a look at Team Canada, Team USA and Team Russia and then makes his predictions for how the tournament will end up when all is said and done.
Kent Wilson, Editor of the Nation Network talks with Lowetide about a postively festive potpourri of topics. Included in the bowl is the fact that Jarome Iginla is now approaching 500 career goals and the performance of Calgary GM Jay Feaster in his first full season. The Dynamic Duo also discuss the new Coach of the LA Kings Darryl Sutter and document how strange Sutter’s time was in Calgary.
Then the conversation turns to the WJHC and Team Canada gets the ol' Holiday Once Over.
Aaron Vickers stops by to give his thoughts on the WJHC giving a preview of Team USA, Team Finland and the Mighty Team Canada.
Anyone ever hear of the legendary Jason Gregor? Well he is on the show too this week, recapping his hugely successful “Helping others” Charity Auction during the month of December. Then the fine fellow gives his thoughts on Team Canada in the upcoming WJHC.
Peter Loubardias ends off the show this week with his thoughts on the 2012 WJHC includiing a detailed look at Team Canada, Team USA and Team Russia.
Lowetide ends off this week's broadcast with his take on the Ales Hemsky Saga in Edmonton before signing off wishing Merry Christmas to us all and giving us his best in the New Year. Thanks LT!
