Nation Radio – June 23, 2012 Entry Draft Edition

Updated: June 24, 2012 at 9:24 am by NationRadio



The 2012 Entry Draft was a wild one, with an unexpected run on defenders in the top-10, the Jordan Staal and Luke Schenn trades as well as Calgary making the biggest risk/reward pick in the first round. The Nation had no less than five people on the ground in Pittsburgh watching the action and rubbing elbows with scouts and GM’s alike. Yesterday, all of them talked to Allan about their takes and experiences.

This is Nation Radio.

Part 1

Dustin Nielsen of the TEAM1260 was also on the ground in Pitts. He starts off the show by sharing his thoughts on the Oilers draft as well as some Oilers trade rumors and a few shots at at Jason Strudwick.

Part 2

In segment two, Thomas Drance of Canucks Army and the Vancouver Sun talks about the Canucks choice of Brendan Gaunce as well as their interesting predilection for picking over-aged players in the draft.

Part 3

Nations Overlord Kent Wilson is up next to talk about who the heck this Mark Jankowski kid is anyways. He also shares some impressions of the draft as a whoie.

Part 4

Allan collects some comments from Stu MacGregor and Jason Gregor on the Oilers draft, possible trade partners for Edmonton as well as rumors about a new coach for the Oil.

Part 5

Robert Cleave of JetsNation (formerly FlamesNation) joins Allan next to discuss Jacob Trouba, the Gustavsson trade and missed opportunities.

Part 6

We end off with comments from Oilers second round pick Mitch Moroz as well as Corey Graham. Corey spoke about Moroz’s strengths as a player and his potential impact on the Oilers in the future.

Due to technical difficulties, we currently can’t offer the entire show in one giant file. We will attempt to rectify this issue ASAP.

And finally, we would like to remind potential sponsors that we still have some very reasonable advertising packages available on Nation Radio. Please contact Kent Wilson ( for more information.
