NATIONRADIO: A QUESTION OF TECHNOLOGY

With all the hoopla surrounding the lockout on the horizon and the Economics of the arena dominating the news, the Sports Section looks more like the Business Section these days. Who doesn't love a riveting cost analysis diagram where there should be a breakdown of the Oilers training camp line up? And we would rather see an interview with Fehr and Bettman wearing rumpled suits and rumplier faces than the Nuge all sweaty and talking about skating any day.

*gunshot*

Anywhoo, we thought we would pose a question as it relates to a conundrum for the Nation if this is how things are going to be. An entire article surrounding the economics of the Nation Network. On a Friday night with no hockey in sight. Bleak huh?

You're welcome.

Jake Gardiner was on the ice for 62 even strength goals against last season, and Lord help us if we don't go through each and every one to try and pin the blame on somebody else. 

We have so far gone through 20 goals that Jake Gardiner was on the ice for. In Part IV, we tackle six more. Generally, the theme has been that Gardiner's mistakes have been amplified by poor play from teammates, notably Tyler Bozak, Joffrey Lupul and Luke Schenn.

What will we find today?

Most of these predictions assume an 82 game season which at this point is unlikely but whatever.

Jake Gardiner was on the ice for 62 even strength goals against last season, and Lord help us if we don't go through each and every one to try and pin the blame on somebody else.

Eight goals to look at, today. We are not, as I expected at the outset, watching plays and noting a Staplesean mis-step by a single player that leads to a goal. What we are watching is the capsizing of five Toronto Maple Leafs in this train wreck of a defensive system. Through Part I and Part II, we have noted two goals against that were the direct result of Jake Gardiner's play.

Nobody wants Joffrey Lupul

Here's a fun little story about how Joffrey Lupul wants to go play in Europe in case of an NHL lockout. Fair enough. Lupul is a likable enough guy, suggesting that both sides "might want to apologize", referring to the players and owners, for the dispute that will shut down training camp openings next week.
