With Edmonton's post-season hopes once again turning cold, Lowetide's attention is sensibly turning to the long-term again, with his gaze shifting towards the upcoming draft in June 2012. Futures and the ever depressing Battle of Alberta are the topics du jour.
This is Nation Radio.
Regional scout for Redline Report Kirk Luedeke starts us off. The Boston Bruins drafting excellence as well as the importance of prospect development are amongst the topics.
Hockey Prospectus' prospect guru Corey Pronman heads up the second segment. Lowetide and Corey talk about some of the players in the upcoming draft as well as Corey's current "top 50 NHL prospects" list.
Mr. twolingpass Ryan Lambert of Puck Daddy and FlamesNation is up next. He discusses how bright the future is for the Oilers and how much of a challenege they represent for the Flames going forward. Hahahaha, just kidding.
Oil Kings PbP voice and host of Edmonton sports night live, Corey Graham stops by. Corey looks talks about Griffin Reinhart, WHL prospects and the Oil Kings in particular.
Nation overlord Kent Wilson makes his weekly visit. Calgary's direction, willingness to rebuild and future trades are the topics.
Some audio from the Battle of Alberta pre-game, including Taylor Hall.
For those of you who want the full meal deal.
